Bad Drive, Not So Bad

I really like having the Garmin 205 Bike computer for my driving lessons because I can really get perspective on my drive once I take a look at the maps. What felt like the suckiest drive ever on Saturday didn’t look too bad from the satellite’s perspective.

As a whole, the drive doesn’t have that many crazy shapes and wiggly lines. We didn’t actually wander all over the map, we just had a few wobblies here and there. This is pretty helpful for a person who can lean a shade toward insanely perfectionistic about her driving because while things aren’t perfect, they’re also not that far from pretty decent. And it’s important to not let perfect be the enemy of good.

I actually had some good circles at the west end of the dressage field:

Much better than I expected to see–though I owe Francine some cones for crunching over hers to get these circles so nice.

But of course, it also does show some of the….not so perfect circles:

Probably crunched some cones getting these circles so horribly wrong too.

But things are going well enough to seriously consider showing Blessing at the upcoming HOTMHC Fun Show in September. Barring unforeseen circumstances, we’ll be making a go in the carriage classes, maybe an in hand class or two just to prep her. We shall see.
