    Z ride went perfectly as planned with expection of some mechanical failures. Trajectoire started from Cow Creek rd to Wagoner rd. We get to Intersection of Champie rd to regroup, and waited...waited...waited,

    I hate to use slime on flats, we offered WatfW108 to help him replace z tube after he slimmed it & failed to hold air, but he wanna be nice and don't want to hold us back he ask us to take off and want to turn back which he wasn't too far away from black top. He managed to get it out and got a lift from his girlfriend. We keep moving forward.
    Durtklod climbing z hill with caution.
