Thanks for the warning on the tree, it would have been 885 miles back to the previous savepoint if I had hit it.
I don’t know if it existed, or was invisible, or not. I WAS coming in super low (i came in too fast and couldn’t bleed off speed fast, so i was gonna give it a narrow angle to protect my landing gears) so it’s entirely my fault for being careless. But I saw trees on either side of me, but i saw a GAP between them in front of me, like a little grassy area. Over that grassy area i hit ‘something’. But it was 12 hours in and i was tipsy so for all i know it could have been a normal tree and I was just blind, lol. We will never know.
