Yeah, I remember someone in the forum saying that happened to them a while back. Can't remember who. Snow got faster without him noticing, he approached too fast, missed the landing slope entirely. Eek.
Y'know, I'll probably just get used to it after a couple of solid days of jumping. I just have this morbid fear of overshooting.
Actually, what I can probably do is start from a given point on the approach slope, do no speed checking, and adjust my starting point upwards or downwards depending on results. At least that way, once I've dialed it in, I can get a feel for what the speed feels like when I hit the low point of the approach.
In retrospect, "Let's get the goat drunk"
should have been my cue to leave the party.
