    Has he learned how to float on his back if he gets in trouble. Pretty good skill if you find yourself tired or catch a cramp

    Cool and some kind of achievement, but I'd hate to be a neighbor and have that thing be the view of the lake.

    Gawd-a-mighty!!! That's cool! Ours is coming along...we have all the parts connected. I talked to Alex today and found out he got it secure enough that he tested it a few days ago. The latest added tube took it from "radical" to almost "terrifying"...his words. It's pretty hard to rattle him so that means a lot.

    He plans to raise the very end about 4 feet higher where you get dumped into the pool...and lower the entrance tube some...that will bleed some of the speed that is making the last 10 feet a monkey flipping nightmare. At present when you hit the last section there is a slight turn left and it whips you way up high into the top of the tube and monkey flips you sideways as you exit...pretty disconcerting. We are going to take some of the disconcertedness (aka "terror") out of it.

    Sounds frigging awesome! Unless of course you're monkey flipping out of or into the edges of the pool.

    yeah...we are cognizant of the hydroplane aspect. I told Alex if that becomes a problem I'll just hang a tarp to crash into so you drop into the water and not shoot across the pool.
