Had a very easy and pampered flight to Zurich. Even arrived early and the four of us met up with judy and linda for the train to Bern. When we got off that trail all four Holmes were in the car next to us! Then we all went tuning and schlepping bags to the next train to interlachen ost, the next train to lauterbrunen, and finally the cog to Wengen.

At one point in the woods we could hear the cow bells but couldn't see the cows due to the density of trees. As we got closer we could see the cows ...

JJ and I went through the speed trap whilst the others watched. Both of us found that the shape of the course gives us an interesting time. First there is a steep slope which finishes in a double compression and then a rise to a ridge followed by a flat section. The speed is taken at the compression but the rise to the ridge causes both of us to leave the ground. We have to wait to land before we can start to slow down! The speeds ...
