Fundamentals 2: Contour

On to more fundamentals study today. I only spent an hour because it was late before I got started. It’s so hot here that most of the day is wasted just trying not to overheat and stay cool. I have to wait till 9:30 just to get moving and by that time I’m already getting pretty tired.
