None of this is about the Cooper Vortex podcast.

I read your previous response to this inquiry from Chaucer

Your bad faith response was something to the effect of these things could be technically discussed on a podcast. I suspect that is why you were compelled to respond to my question.

By your rationale, anything could be discussed on a podcast thus the Cooper Vortex podcast thread can going forward serve as a slush pile for whatever which is better than you saying "oh yeah my bad" which would apparently be too much.

You have the valid option to just shoot me down as a new poster and then wonder why more people don't get into this case. Or the forum can be reasonable so people can actually follow it.

Your posts are awesome and if you had a book I'd buy it and I'm glad you're back on the forum but you're not even close to being right here

Sorry I missed the question. I jumped at Taft in the mid 1970s. I earned my SCR at Elsinore. Those are the only two Southern California DZs I have jumped at. NorCal DZs include Livermore, Antioch, Tracy, Santa Rosa, Pope Valley, Monterey and Byron.

Jumping this coming Saturday at Byron. I turn 72 soon. So grateful to still be able to skydive.

The original question was about the pics you posted fairly recently of your recurrency jumps. That kind of looked like Taft.

Oh OK. Not Taft, but Byron CA. I have jumped at Taft and can see the resemblance. I jumped at Taft prior to that horrible Twin Beech takeoff crash. I jumped out of that Beech. The takeoffs overstuffed with jumpers on scorching hot days seemed iffy to me but I had no idea that it would end so badly.

The new DZO at Byron has upgraded the facilities with a large interconnected warren of modified shipping containers, trusses and corrugated roofing. It’s like a Mars outpost put together by NASA deserters  Even has a shipping container with tiny “rooms” that rent for $5 a night. The biggest upgrade is replacing the 4 porta potties with a sparking clean bathroom with flush toilets. It all goes into a tank for later pump out. Much more hospitable for the tandems.

Jumping there again on Saturday Oct 26 carrying HF VHF and UHF radios, GPS fed APRS transmitter, 5.4 GHz live video, bagged deployable end fed HF wire dipole and video and audio recording gear. Fully loaded.
