I can still remember my first 540 and the joy that went with that first summer of flying. Trying to do a trick that I'd had explained but never seen. Then the realisation that I'd now got to try and do it left handed as well. :-)

competition is on between me and tom now. I just managed my first rung of a jacobs ladder and to top it off i managed a 720 spinning taz machine :)

Resurected the gemini tonight as tom stole my DS again and I was pleasantly surprised at how good it still feels.
