Way to go Sally! I really agree with point 2 -- persistence is key. Andy Brandt says you'll need 500 attempts to hit a Vulcan (only 497 attempts to go!). The elusive grail of perfection seems forever out of reach, until one day you surprise yourself by nailing it, and suddenly all those frustrating crashes become well worth it!

I was similarly overpowered yesterday at Cold Spring, albeit on a 6.5. My arms are killing me today, but the session was well worth it.

Good luck to Sally with her jibes. I'm still working on mine, but am happy enough when I'm able to stay on the board after getting into the back footstrap. I guess ABK will see me again this year...

Just tell her: "Mast close to the nose" and it will work without the 500 attempts.
Hang loose!

    "It's good to have a shredmobile" my friend Caldwell said, so I made one. It's a Ford E150 cargo van done up with lumber and k-mart plastic boxes.
