Whatever works for you, though that much sand tends to kill circulation in my shoulders eventually.

I think dropping is the only no-no, or time penalty move, depending on whether you're talking about a rutman mile, or the CFN standards. If you can rotate without dropping more power to you.

I usually have to shift it every 1/4 mile or so.

As far as I know any position is fair game as long as you don't put it down.

This seems kin of funny as cleaning it back up is darned hard so the additional time penalty really hurts
