Quite the group you guys had out there! That was me in the green FZJ80 coming down just as you were all starting up the trail.

Hmmm, good to know. I would need to test laptop web access first to be sure... which is hard to do unless I am actually on call and have the dadgum BlackBerry, in which case I would not have tested it first... ow, my head hurts.

Dangit all, though, I could have tested it Saturday night when the servers were down and I was not technically on call. Put it on the todo list!

Red Chili Mobile Technical Support Unit (RCMTSU). I like it. Preliminary test run 1800 hrs. 082909. Ought to include Spring Creek I suppose, to take as many signal readings as possible in the area. Rapid night run. Will need second mobile unit for mechanical insurance!

It would be nice to loosen the leash.

Cool. What time did you start heading up in the morning?

Thanks to Jeff and everyone for a great run. A BIG thank you to Kevin for letting my son and I ride with him. Hopefully next year I'll be able to do the run in my own Toyota!!

Nope I had to work that day out in Fort Collins.

Bummer! So are still going to write copy? If so, are you going to interview Helen for the story?

Some of us were pondering the unusual amount of downhill trail traffic that morning, and we speculated that many might have been returning from camping.
