    Well, I'm the first one back home sorry to say. Carol got violently sick last night. When I got up this morning she was white as a ghost, her skin was cold to the touch and she was dry heaving. At first I thought it might be something she ate. We ate the same thing so what was it?

    I remember a friend having her same symptoms from altitude sickness. I packed all of our shit and got her down the mountain a fast as I could. As soon as we got to the Shell station her color was back and she was feeling almost normal again. This was really scary to me. Carol is a wonderful person and I love her a lot. I think between her not feeling so well at the beginning of our trip and going to 7000+ feet, it caught up to her quick.

    I still had a great time on friday! Thanks again to Brad for helping me lift my bike out of that nasty spot. And also thanks to ALL you guys for letting me catch my breath before resuming our ride. Of course thanks to Rich and Kenny for your kind hospitality. This was a great group of guys to ride and hang out with.

    I'm sorry I was not able to stay or at least say good by. I'm not sorry I made a fast decision to get Carol down the hill and medical treatment if needed. She is resting and feeling much better.

    Wow, getting that sick from 7000 feet? If she was that sick she does not recover that quick from alt sicknes by going lower just like that. You should go to a doctor to get checked out..
