Spats - thanks for the detailed info about your experience. All of "us" who have never attended an AS would like to think that we could do such a thing like it was a walk in the park... well, we need to think again. But, if it wasn't a challenge, would we find it so interesting?

I have a feeling that:

1) if you did just a few exercises to meet the physical challenge, your next time would be easier
2) you would have more enjoyment at the event
3) it would seem half as hard
4) "if you knew then, what you know now" ... well, now you've got that covered

It reminds me of the first time I launched and retrieved my boat: you can read all you want, take advice, and watch videos for hours... but there is no substitute for first - hand experience.

Do you think you might do another AS one day?
