Well done.

While you're out there having fun in the sun, I sat at Red Glare, in the RV Saturday, looking out the window while it SNOWED for an hour.

Not yet, Jimbo. We'll leave that for next time as I'm sure there's 50k' in the design, just need to tweak a few things...
This is already higher than the current TRA M-record (Von Delius at XPRS 2008), but only by a few hundred feet and there's plenty more to be had.
