Look Ma, No Hands!


Look Ma, No Hands!

This is Jet going over the jump in the local park area. He would take a running start at the sled at the top of the hill, land on it on his knees, and his forward momentum would be transferred to the sled and he'd go flying down the hill.

He got this technique down solid and took it to a much bigger hill around here, and did just fine.

It's good to have a small body with less weight, low center of gravity, and good knees. *laughter*

He got me to go down that slope, too. And I had to sit down on the sled and scoot forward. My mass, though, made the downhill ride quite thrilling enough for me. No need for the running start. Though Jet did offer to run with me and have both of us land on the sled at the same time! Quite generous of him.
