Tiz wet here with my Bishops Finger in hand. Its a Real ale if anyone is worried what I am on about.

Thanks for posting, 2 360's I am out of breath just watching it.

If ever I try one of those I think I will have to designate a runner.

Sounded like it was fun, even if t was wet.

POURING sweat by the end, yeah, and a little winded too.

Isn't there a line along the lines of which, if you have to run you should not have needed to do it.

Those variable breezes can be difficult to deal with.

Well done John.

If I can, I will... Pure and simple. :)

It was only a request for demo, them knowing that I really get off on situations like that. <grin>

Seven days without flying a Rev makes one weak.

Awesome stuff, John.
I guess this was the largest "indoor arena" you've flown in ;) .
Was this after you proposed to Takako? You seemed especially "amped"!!!
