Being Thanksgiving Eve and all, the boss gave me a hall pass for the afternoon. w00t! So, I busted on down to Stankowski Field for a kicking session. It was chilly – 12 deg. C / 55 deg. F – but the sun was shining, the wind was calm. The footbag was… um… not all that cooperative, but I still give thanks that I can, and do, still kick. I tried to have a little fun with the video today, so there’s a little bit extra with the usual best rally on tape. As a bonus, I got a chance meeting with our famous, totally cool, hometown NASCAR racer Carl Edwards! Enjoy!
Got a chance to work on the sled run today. Got the first three support cross-beams done, the 4th mostly in place, you can see the curve taking shape!
h4x354x0r gains entrance to his secret lair, but it’s slim pickins for tasty runs tonight. I tried, but… Best run of butterflies: 11. Reviewing foot carnage for something to post: Ouch. Realization that my camera must be having problems and because my video files are all glitchy anyway: nice.The fact that at least I still gotz kn33 bUmpz? Priceless
I’ve got just enough hill in my backyard for a bit of sledding fun. In previous years, we just shot into the neighbor’s yard. Then, he put up a privacy fence – right at the bottom of the hill. Not to worry, I just built a bank turn for the sled run with an old door and a few other pieces of wood and carpet.
