Hey DesertSurfer, nice report. Love the desert anytime of the year, especially after the rains, but she can be unmerciful. I'm sure you have logged a few hints for next time, maybe a SPOT, for example.
Now tell the truth. While you were on the trail didn't you think to yourself, 'This is gonna make a great RR' ?
At the end of the day, better that your report be in the first person than in the third.
