Looks good! I need to do some serious organizing to my "lab". It's getting completely cluttered with so much gear, and now all my biking gear in there as well. I like how you have your packs hung up, that is what I shall now do
Looks great! I am gettin on mine this winter!

Life looks better from a BIAS hammock.
That is really nice!!!
I had a 12x24 room for and exercise room. I donated all my exercise equipment to my workplace last week, and now we have a gym at work. (I still get to use the equipment, so no loss ) This weekend I moved all my hammock camping gear and sewing gear in there. I have to organize it, but yours is much nicer looking. I have two walls with french doors looking out over the back yard and woods behind that, so that is nice, but I lose a lot of wall space. It is very nice to have a place to myself to work or relax. I will have to figure a way to hang a hammock in there.
Nice lab...looking forward to the results of your research.
My first tandem jump was at Skydive OBX the week of Thanksgiving last year...I was instantly hooked, and read all I could online, etc. about skydiving. I did another tandem and some static line jumps at Skydive Walterboro near Charleston, SC earlier this year. I'm still hooked and definitely want to continue (most likely have to start over, preferably AFF) my student training...just gotta make the time and money for it! Cleveland is definitely a unique place...I never really got used to living there, but loved the area. In fact, I'm considering a move (pending I find a job)...most likely back to the Upstate of SC, which isn't too far away.

I know this is off topic but I started Falling out of perfectly good aircraft with the Army ( Static Line of course ) ... When I got back from my 2nd rotation to Afghan I joined the Green Beret Sport Parachute Activity out of Ft Bragg and it wasn't really static line but I.A.D. were the instructor held your pilot chute as you hung from the wing spar, released and went through the motions of pulling the balled up news paper from the BOC ( Cessna 182 ). The reason we did it this way was to learn body control and " Canopy Control " before going into the more advance body positions, formations and higher AGLs . More people get jacked up on landing by coming in to hot and not knowing how to properly " ride their rigs " ( i.e. Canopy Control ) using the A.F.F. method than the I.A.D. students who were also at the same DZ . I really miss falling as my Wife hated sitting at the DZ all day watching and baking in the sun. She also saw quite a few people come in way to hot and screw themselves up and always wondering if I was going to be next to tumble across the DZ. If there was a USPA Cert DZ near me I would try and make a jump or 2 but I don't want to put my Wife through the worry cycle anymore. Anyway if anybody plans on falling make sure it is done at a USPA cert'd DZ and not some fly by night DZ .
