The namesake came out to greet us on Hancock Pass. Still sporting the "owie" but soon to be repaired. Missed you on the run. We need more 40s. Terry

Something slipped below, there were quite a few loose rocks, etc. I was probably a touch too far right to begin with too, hard to say. I think all the rain could have made that scree field looser than normal, the stuff on the edge was dang loose though, to say the least. Anyway after a small bump suddenly my line was a foot or so to the right from where it used to be, so in about one second I went from all is stable to slipping on the edge and getting worse, so my choices were crank it left and gas it, turn right and attempt to drive down & be the new tail gunner, or just stop & ask for help. I chose option 3..

Awesome trip! Thank you everyone.

Special thanks to Cheeseman, Jill, and Dad for the last night rescue efforts. Silly 80, 90 weight is for diffs...
