I saw some nice YouTube videos of you guys. The ones where Kevin couldn't get "hooked up" or something like that.

Yea we missed you Bill. Jeff and I looked at the large ledge\rock on the left in the garden and thought of you crawling over it. We did have an old runner on 38's come out behind us. But, he certainly wasn't shinny and red.

We did catch a couple of you via CB as my boys and wife were taking me up to Argentine for a Father's Day trip to try out the new knee in alpine conditions.

If I can heave-ho on Chili repairs it won't be long now before I am back in action!!

Yup....6 psi wasn't low enough.....once I dropped to 2-3psi the new stiff sidewals started to act a little softer.

On the recovery itself one suggestion was to strap me backwards off the high-center, but then I'd still be dealing with getting past the initial spot, and my thinking was to get past it and move on. As it turned out the whole session was probably under 10 minutes. All of us were past the Rock Garden, had lunch and were moving again in under an hour.

The greasy mud in the tires made for some interesting non-intended lines :-)

There had been some stacking at a few spots here and there, I remember commenting on it.
