Maybe that’s because no one is riding the unicorn that’s clopping its way across the countryside, maybe that’s because of the grace of the mythical beast. I haven’t made it over the hill and, sadly, CLOP doesn’t tell me how far I did get. About a third of the way, going off the yellow arrow at the bottom. Find your rhythm and run like the wind.
