All this talking about my new baby is making me want to get out and play now, even if it is nearly midnight!

I don't know what the overflip part means but it sounds cool!

I landed 4 more full wheel walks today, rode out very smoothly. I am much more confident now, transitioning from riding into wheel walk is about 90% now, and feet back to pedals is like.... 5%...

That's about as far as I ever got (well I think I got 8 one day) - it got boring so I stopped practicing and now I probably can't even do one.

Oh right haha. Well once I've started to get the hang of it, it is getting easier and easier every single time I do it now. I can't wait until I've had a good night sleep and committed my learning to memory.

Today i landed a number of freemounts!!

My thanks go out to Dane (not Dane M) for his motivation and patience
He also gave me the push to climb a step-ish mud hill...Failed the first time but he said lets go down and try again!

I decided the rolling mount just wasn't working for me but the static mount is great!

Hey I was very patient too.

Today I rode 13 revs of one foot! Which is the full length of road that is flattest near my house, so I need to learn how to ride one foot uphill or go somewhere else now.

I also did 5 revs of one foot ww!! Now that I am much better at normal ww, it made this much easier, I even did 3 revs ww, then switched to 1ft ww for 2 revs and landed it. I was pretty psyched. I really want to get to gliding soon.

Nice work! That's a lot of progress!
