Sorry, of course.
The problem is that the first post which started the thread has gone. At the top of the thread is in fact a reply to that post by another board member.
I first noticed that the first post was missing after adding the reply entitled 'Day 5'.
It would be great if that first post could be resurrected, as it is an introduction to the adventure story, without which the whole thread is improperly framed.
I hope that is clearer.
(Strangely, if you hover over the thread in the Ride Report forum, you get a little popup containing the first few lines of that missing original post...)
