September 1, 2013 Obstruction Point
« on: 09/01/13, 08:26 PM »

1/4 mile from the car!   Smiley  400' feet in 2 runs!  Roll Eyes   Very firm up top but a safe outrun.  Most of the snow was pine-needle covered, but I think there were two patches of blown-in fresh snow from the storms last weekend. 

72 months = 6 years of TAY    Cool Cool Cool 
This was micro-turns to be sure, but still longer than my lowest total of 350' in August 2009 just before going to China.

Thanks, Mike.  I coulda gotten 2 more turns if I hadn't had to slideslip the micro-headwall  Wink
BTW my wife bicycled DOWN the HR Road after strolling the meadows as my support team.
It was a fabulous way to end the summer before we resume teaching school.

Well done and keep it up.

What would we do without support teams.  I didn't see any foxes on my last trip, but came home to a real babe. 

Cheers.
