Rob Tomkins 11 yrs on Can't Post

I guess most people won't have heard of Rob as its now the 11th year since he passed away. Rob was an incredibly talented guy, easy going and fun to road trip with. For what its worth I have great memories of sitting on the front of the boat at kjerag watching the seals playing in the water and the boys agreeing that life simply couldn't get any better. I still smile thinking about climbing a 1000' chimney on xmas eve followed by a jump in the snow at CDC. Unfortunately Rob isnt my only friend to pass away but he was the first. For what its worth buddy I havent forgotten the good times. Neil.

I was there in Norway before he passed in September. He was a bad ass and remember he could run up to Exit 6 in 50 minutes. He did a jump with me on my birthday.

An aside, were you not supposed to quit jumping at 100 jumps :)

When he dropped a ball juggling, he would do a hand stand. He was good at both.

I remember Rob, I jumped with him in Perris Valley. He was a great guy. I never forgot him. Rest in Peace and watch over us at the exit point!

19 years went past in the blink of an eye. Think about all the shit that could have happened since then; meet a girl, have a family, get old, get fat maybe get a new hobby. I guess you’ll still be throwing gainers in a wingsuit off exit 4 years before the rest of the world caught on. Happy memories mate.
