Huge thanks to Rob "the legend" for his services every year (he skips a race to do it). Not only as A leader, which few could pull off (it's a rowdy bunch : ), but he's also buddies with the head ranger who gives us some latitude at the campground (we need it) and keeps the back gate open all weekend. Thanks Dave Beezy for sweeping too. Thanks to Nick and his sweep in B, the Big Rooster (Scott) and sweep in the 2nd B group and leading the Sunday ride. Brec and Garrett for coming on last minute and handling C, they'd never done this before (if you're ever worried you may get hurt on a ride pick them, both are firemen and paramedics and know what they're doing, on several levels) Thanks to Big Tim (playinatwork) and Mr. Guns (sweep) for doing the Adv ride and Chris (ADVNeophyte) as middle sweep. These guys work their butts off picking up the battleships all day long but it sure looked like they had fun (got to see some preview vids). 1st time for Tim as a leader too but he took to it like a duck to water combining his dirt experience (80's factory ATK rider) and years of Iron Butt experience plus he introduced a new method (bread crumbs) which we may expand on in the future. Last but by far not least thanks to Rich, Eric, Fred, and Sam for working with the D group, they're creating better riders. All of these guys are natural leaders in their day jobs and we're lucky to have them, thanks again fellows.. And thanks to all that chipped in to do the work behind the scenes, it's more than you'd think and there are too many to list but I have to single out Rich and Eric, every year they go way beyond the call of duty and is amazing what they do before, during, and after the event!! Thanks for all the preparations and hospitality of Cotton, Tommy, and the Wilders, locals that help us immensely and for whom it wouldn't even be possible. Lastly thanks to everyone that showed up to ride, especially in the face of impending forecast (we know by now those usually turn out to be duds : ) You guys make the event and why we keep doing it, hope you had fun and hopefully we'll see you next time.
