Wow, the gusts sure packed a punch!  I was sometimes in survival mode, taking me back to the Gorge every now and then. I've rediscovered the joy of jump jibes. I will need to find a happy balance between jj's and "vulcan attemps". I had previously stated that I was no longer going to do jj's because it is messing with my weight forward concept, but I think I will just have to put a little more brain power to work, so that I can mix and match at will. A bit lonely, although that was my own fault for launching in a different spot than everyone else.
