There was a stiff headwind, however. That’s why it took more then seven hours to so the distance I did.

All in all, however, a great start to the state of Texas!

    You've obviously got right into the Texan 'everything is bigger here'! It's been a long time since you've posted any 'Rob doing his jumping thing' photos. Glad to see you've still got spring, sproing, sprong. How many days till your visa/visitor permit runs out?

    By the time you get back to NZ you'll have sent an album full of 'jumps'. I'm not sure if you're demonstrating your fitness or skill with photography but I do enjoy these photos. I think the ones you did in Turkey have been the best so far but maybe the snowy background added to their interest.
