    Greetings Slingshot Community friends!!
    Just presenting a small video of today's hike.
    I brought along two unfortunate cans. I'm afraid they had no chance of escaping :)
    Hope you enjoy!!
    Cheers ...Q

    Bands were a bit slow, due to the cold weather. But they did managed to whack those cans!

    Great video! Looks nice and green for cold weather. Looks like it was a good day to be out in the fresh air! Nice shooting too!

    Dear Arturo, THANK YOU so much for your feedback!!
    I'm forever grateful to you by this PIECE OF ART!! The iconic "Conus" that has travel half of the slingshot World. It is still very, very functional! A genius design!
    Today was not the best of days for rubber heating but, even so, I did catch some hours of clean, blue sky and a bit of sun. Waiting for the summer, as always...
    Un abrazo fuerte, amigo Arturo!!
    Q
    Thank you for your reply, Palmettoflyer!
    In this part of Portugal, winter can be very harsh to endure, not so much because of sub-zero temperatures, but because of the constant wind and humidity that comes from sea. I guess that takes a toll on rubber bands. At least, I can see a considerable difference from summer. And I was not carrying the slingshot in my inner coat pocket, which I use to do to keep bands warm. So, these first two shots were a bit cold, so to speak.
    Anyway, clouds decided to open a bit for me today :D Not so bad!
    Cheers ...Q

    Yes, the camera was very close to the can :) I thought it would look very good, with the soda flying everywhere!
    Cheers ...Q
