Woohoo! I made it through the four pack at GB this morning! A couple of times before the sun came up enough to blind me on the run-in.
Ok, not exactly thrilling to those of you that can actually DJ or are young enough to switch off your brain while hurtling through the air but for this 41yr old fat guy it was suh-weeeeet!

Nice job.. those are some great confidence boosters. I haven't been out there this year, can you still take a slight left at the end and turn it into a six-pack?

Yep, you can do that. The last two are pretty overgrown at the moment. I had one run that was almost a four and half pack, doh!

Thanks.
Like I said not real impressive but a definite positive milestone for me.
I need to do some more weed eating out there soon. Going to see if I can borrow a friends brushhog since it didn't look like I made a dent in the weeds after an hour and a half with my weedeater.

You're not alone. I've had several 4 1/2 and 5 1/2 pack runs out there before.

Those are happiness rhythms. Now you're ready to make the left turn and hit the remaining two... there is a trick that makes it really easy.
"a trick that makes it really easy"? Would that be not freaking out and hitting the brakes or relaxing and going with the flow? :lol: I guess both of those would help.:D
The trick for me is on the four pack part the jumps are filled in so I'm not staring at a wall to run into.:rolleyes: That's the thing when you get old is the mental fear is harder to conquer than the actual feat of doing.:madman:

I'll give it away: the key is looking where you want to go before you get there. It's simple, but takes some focus. :)
Yeah, yeah, yeah. That's one of things I know to do but some days it just doesn't happen.:D

And at the jumps, when you're heading towards a takeoff and all you see is sky until you are airborne...that's the point where I used to be able to shut off my brain and now it screams "don't do this!" :lol:
