Left Austin at 1pm on a crazy hunch that the iW NAM forecast would be correct for a nice, late afternoon session, and it was.

Started trying the entry into starboard Culos, Bobs, Funnels, etc. Still looking for that elusive Spock 540 on port on the big gear in non-perfect conditions. As usual, made the first SBV attempt, but then none after. Going to start to try grabbing the pole on the starboard vulcan attempts. It seems to really have helped me out on port. In fact, I was shocked when I saw the video of my Hatchery Spock 540. There I was, grabbing the pole for a split second, and not even consciously knowing I was doing it. It makes things a whole lot easier. Taty does it. And Gollito does it too. And they're pretty respectable, I reckon.

Thanks to awesome Don for helping me out after my 5.7 probably sailed it's last day ever. It's had a long, wonderful life.

I've had this song stuck in my head for 24 hours a day. I just bought the DVDs of both seasons, and the music CDs too. That may have been a huge mistake. My old brain doesn't do well with catchy songs stuck inside of it.
