Excellent day at the Girl! Got some more expert vulcan advise from Randy the expert: do it now! That is, don't hang out in the setup position looking for a ramp (like I've been doing and he saw me doing.) You don't need a ramp. Looking for ramps is beginner's folly. Hanging out in the setup position (unhooked, centered over the board on all planes) makes you lose speed, and losing speed makes you end up going in the same direction as pre-pop because you didn't rotate enough because you didn't have enough speed. It deserves to be said that it was a gorgeous sunny day at the Girl. Girl Rocks! Stopped and ate half an Amore Roma to go at PPizza on the way to venue 2.
