83 I was the "wind dummy" which resulted in one out and back on the 5.2 before rerigging. Tried a few more back loops and on the last 2 my problem changed from not rotating enough to now overrotating. Mike, Brian, and Paul were trying them too, so it was fun to work on it together--they gave me the confidence to try something I probably never would have on my own. It's an incredible feeling to go around like that. Now just need to work on the landing, which I've heard is the hard part. But I think that in comparison to getting over my fear of the move, which took 2 years, the landing will not be so bad.
