Thank you all for a rewarding day of work and fun. I look forward to some pics of our escapades.

I especially want to thank Matt (mgoose82) for the use of his wonderful space in Parker, and Brian (thefatkid) for taking his only day off and spending it working on our rigs.

Molly (Lysmachia) and Doug (mrdoug) made us fantastic vittles, and Jim (dr350jja), Don (Don_G) and Willie (Willie) did a great job helping get the site set up, and then working in and out of the hot sun.

Thank you to all of the other folks who helped out, made generous donations, got their rigs worked on and others who just stopped by.

See you again on the trail soon!
