It wasn't me but...

Heading down the road to the North Rim of the Grand Canyon just before sunset when a guy on what I think was a Connie just FLEW past me going the other way. I say flew because he we easily pushing triple digits. I waved and 'thought' I noticed his left pannier open. I wasn't sure because from the front it was just a little sliver of plastic sticking out and at that speed I just got a very brief glimpse. About a minute later I see a lone sock in my lane but didn't think anything of it. A couple of miles later; a t-shirt and pair of tidy-whities laying in my lane. I realized that it was indeed his pannier open and he was leaving a crumb trail of clothes. In the next couple of miles I passed by various items of laundry spread out with a little donation to nature every couple of hundred yards. I knew if I turned around there was no way I was catching him unless he stopped and in that case he was going to find out what happened anyway.
