Missing Sleep Mat

Augiedog, sent you a email but didn't hear back. You guys left a sleep mat at the Tat Shak.

Should I keep it here for your return trip or what?

Ride safe.

Bo, after hearing about your assisted assent up to Buzzards Roost off of Indian Creek road I'm glad I bailed out after MG. I think the road race tires on my KLR would be a handful on that climb.
