Makes me feel better about being on the sidelines. A bit.

Prior to modern

Home for 11 years. A tiny workers cottage that wobbled on it's stumps when people came up the stairs. 

Many people came, crashed, survived, and moved on over the years. Good history.

Kite buggy location

Bigger park, more scope for damage.

Gusty conditions can produce far more than average adventure.

3 years ago I ran into the back of a parked car on my push bike. Shoulder reconstruction, hydro therapy, major pain, and titanium pins. No shooting, no riding, no kite buggying, and a sling for months. I think of it everytime I pass the place.

Skydive Ramblers


View Larger Map

Ramblers Drop Zone.

I first came here in 1982. I had attended a talk given by the owner, Dave McEvoy.

The man is a legend - inspired me. Those days old round Para Commanders, landings were amazing.

 Went back 10 years later and completed the Accelerated Free Fall.

Called in for one day and ended up checked in to the local motel for a week, jumping every day.

 I cannot be trusted to go near the place - I simply refuse to go home.

 I still owe Dave - he changed my life in more ways than skydiving.
