Getting everyone on the plane early + tailwinds = starting my car at the original scheduled time of arrival.
Other things from the weekend: NOTE WELL: Making no mistakes = tied for the last spot in the B finals (but not getting in on a tiebreaker, and it was really a tie for 4th place anyway). Making one mistake=all by myself in 13th.
Goal: top 5% (with 704 contestants, = 35th place). Actual finish, 39th. Without mistake: 25th.
Puzzle closest to the gods: #5 (!), only two minutes behind the pace. And (I think) the best puzzle of the tournament too, so only fitting.
