What's my background and skill? First took a lesson 20+ years ago on a small bump and was able to stay up most of the day. Tried a few times since with the occasional lesson but nothing stuck emotionally. Past couple of years, have focused on getting the kids into it. This year, took another lesson and something clicked, and now addicted. So far about 4 days in and have gone from falling most runs on blues, to rarely; and turns out I'm OK with sierra cement. My falls are pretty unspectacular and controlled. Am in good shape and can go almost all day. Like everyone else, just trying to raise the volume on this next effort.
