We are going to go with a Subaru Outback. My Dad has one and he has good things to say about it.
Ah yes, the Australian Outback.

2 months in!

Today is the 2 month anniversary of my first video. Feeling good about where I'm at. I have 55 subs, which is halfway to my goal for the year. I've made over 20 videos, which is a good pace. I've gone godlike with 4 of the 9 classes, and come close with 2 others. And most importantly, I feel I'm get...

Re: Fanzine

Winter weather limited me to two shreds in all of February.  I did sneak in a driveway shred before our last big snowstorm: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kef2TEyIlTY While its a shame I only played twice in Feb, it was not for lack of trying.  I'm not overly worried about it.  Once we start gettin...

TPP makes us smarter

Nice to see video in the blog. Also enjoyed spotting this guy in the middle of the video, and feeling smart that I recognized it: Mana Island; Don Binney; 1971; VUW.2005.1 https://images.ehive.com/accounts/3332/objects/images/1pdamft_cshr_l.jpg See, the Top Post Paintings are making us more cultured...

Re: Subs

subscribers. I'm up to 11 now, which is a piddly amount but still is motivating. I don't have a set goal for my channel yet, but it'd be neat to hit 100 subs in my first year. It's a weird goal, because I know these things are exponential and not linear. So I could see myself increasing subs at an ...

That's a heavy beer!

I've favored bags that are notably heavier ... I wonder if there's an upper physical bound of bag weight... I bet there is and I bet I've been flirting with it for a while.  Hold my beer. The key term isn’t heaviness, but density of fill. https://media3.giphy.com/media/5669bWEI7TS3S/giphy.gif I can...

Ivan Driveway

Thanks Gray!  I'm about 4 months out from when I got injured and the ankle still feels a bit stiff.  While that's not ideal, I remind myself of the following: 1. I still have several months before Worlds competition begins.  As long as I don't reinjure myself, that's extra time for the ankle to heal...

4 Shreds in January

Happy to report I got in a proper shred yesterday.  The weather was doing its typical wild fluctuations, but I got lucky with my timing and managed an outdoor shred during the 1 hour of good weather we got.  I tried out a new spot on my driveway.  Most of my driveway is on a steep incline, but there...

New Shoes, Arctic Winds

Tried to play today, but the weather turned on me bad. In the 10 minutes it took me to get to my shred site we went from t-shirt weather to icy winds, and I couldn't warm up even with long sleeves and gloves. I couldn't even get through a warm up it was so cold. Very frustrating. On one hand I want ...

Subs

I haven't given up on making videos yet, which I take as a small victory. I've also slowly (glacially) started building up a community of subscribers. I'm up to 11 now, which is a piddly amount but still is motivating. I don't have a set goal for my channel yet, but it'd be neat to hit 100 subs in m...

Short, medium, long term good news

Pleased to report good news developments in the short, medium, and long run. Short Term good news:  I got in a shred on Saturday.  Weather was borderline good when I started, with sun and temps in the low 50s.  Then the sun ducked behind a cloud, temps dropped to the 30s, and I legit thought it migh...

Hacky 2021

Hacky new year Modified! I'm happy to report I've played twice in the past few weeks. That doesn't sound like a lot, but considering I basically sat out October through December with an injury that counts as progress. My left ankle feels mostly healed. Sometimes it feels a little weird during warmup...

Visual improvement!

it's also still a challenge to make decent looking/sounding videos. I need to toy with the settings more, as the visual quality isn't as sharp as I see on some other people's channels.
In good news, I feel I made some progress on this front:

Dank Derek Bag

been diggin’ the newest iterations of bags I’ve been doing. With most of the final tweaks worked out. Me too. I've only had two sessions with the bag you sent me, but it's played fantastic in both. Zero break in, stalls well, sets true. Best bag of yours that I've played with so far. Thanks again f...

It's gotta be online again

There's not really much chance for a real life gathering - But yes, online Worlds is the most likely scenario and I would say that is close to certain. Yeah, if there's no bid currently (end of January) I'd be shocked if anybody could pull off the logistics of securing an in-person venue in time fo...

Re: Canberra, Australia via SCL - Daniel Boyle

Adrian Dick would have to be in the list for NZ, probably number 3. Good call. Liam reached a higher absolute level of play than Adrian, but for the time periods they were active Adrian was closer to the top. That is, Adrian in the late 90s was likely a top 20 shredder in the World, while Liam in t...

Still trying!

My experiment in being a TF2 YouTuber is...progressing. There's a bit of an aimbot/cheater crisis lately, which has made it very hard to get good footage. Once I do get good footage, it's also still a challenge to make decent looking/sounding videos. I need to toy with the settings more, as the visu...
