I had such a treat yesterday when I logged on and found a new video from Ron Seay with a Day 1 Journey to learning a crackpacker. This is so very cool. I need to go back to watch my day 1 video. I am glad that I have it all together and not spread out all over the place so you can see the progression. I really believe daily recording can help you see the things that you are doing.

Its been a very long time since I started this journey. Since I started this way back when I have learned many other tricks. Some that are considered to be more difficult that this one trick. I was talking with Tod Miller and he said. "Mark you have abandon the crackpacker" I thought about it long and hard and he was exactly correct. I would only dabble in it when I felt like going through the motions. This trick has really beat me up. But I am going to take control of it and complete this journey. My ride in ability is finally starting to show signs of being more consistence. Any other time I would happen to ride it it would only happen once in that session and there were many days that I could not ride in even once. Today I was able to ride in 4 times 3 times I was in control and starting to try and step back. I just re-watched Effraim's #9 and saw the position of his body when he steps out of crackpacker. I am going to work very hard at achieving that balance point. I have gotten this far there is no reason that I can't finish this off this year.
