You know when you get that feeling like today is not going to be your day? Yeah, I had it. I still had a camp date so I rolled out. The south side trails are so fast that sometimes you're so into climactic singletrack euphoria that you lose things. Like my phone. This is where I thinks to me-self "shoulda stayed in bed". Luckily this directionally challenged fellow has a good memory of where I've been so I meet up with the group- GTED, Cuz, and Rob Houlihan (aka Deerslayer). to retrace w/ cuz calling me non-stop. Deerslayer finds it at the bottom of a fast gully. THANK YOU HOULIHAN!!! If Radiohead ever needs a singer they should call you. Ended up doing some more riding, packed it in and went to the in-laws to comb out my ass. No really, Harry, our donkey, was pretty matted. Grilled out on the crick beach and hung with the family. Nice finish.
