Umm? That's super!

Perhaps you misunderstood my last comment?
I'm currently well in front regarding lottery winnings, nothing else implied.

I'm certainly not discounting skill and plenty of good eyes which is what those photos imply.

Or diffs. my only whinge is the fact I can't afford them, in spite of my massive lottery winnings.


(edit: I bet that bit took a long time..!)

Yes. I was very cautious and concerned because I didn’t have a sump guard. Not seeing where I was going made me more concerned. A couple of times I was going to call it quits, but with guidance I continued. So much better going up than down.

Ooh yeah, at least going up you have some idea of what's coming...


Until you get to the top. That last bit where there's no more up is always a bit of a worry for me. Purely psychological I'm sure.
