well, it looks like iv went and made an ass of myself again  Embarrassed

and I was ssssooooo excited for a day or two, thinking that i had broke 200....

i went back to where i was sling the other day, sling with my friend, when it slowly dawned on me that the clump of woods we were slinging at looked just a little different from the way they looked on google maps... and that we were positioned by the road a little strangely compared to where i measured...

and it appears i measured to the wrong clump of woods..... re-measured with my pace, was actually roughly 100m to the woods.
not the first time iv ended up doing something along these lines....   Tongue



Even 100 meters is impressive for something that you plucked off a tree.

I agree.  I'd be happy to get 100m with a walnut!

Thanks for coming clean on it Grin

Judging distance is tricky - even with Google. Still, 200m is quite possible (maybe not with a walnut) - but you'll get there with something Smiley

There's an old pecan grove near me I havn't been to yet this year - darn locals were having a balloon festival there the weekend I planned to go Grin, so I havn't slung any this year, but I could certainly believe 100m.

Little, did you throw the glandes?
