    I just got back from WDT3, learned some new things. First and foremost ATGATT does NOT mean boots, helmet, shorts and a Bowie knife. Second, dog poo makes a good tire lube. Third if you are a new off-road rider, don't borrow a KLR650 and try to ride deep sand. And 4th? Make sure you have enough time to stay for the brats and whiskey. There were other lessons to learn, but that's all I remembered.

    I added to the broken rib count (Jay was at 5 or 6 last I heard) with a small altercation with a magical stump. I broke one for sure, maybe 2. It only hurts to breathe now that I'm done riding. Greg tried to kick a tree down and failed miserably, rode to the hospital in BRF and came back with a few stories and an Ace bandage.

    We had eight riders total at this years "Death trip".

    They included:

    Druid
    KTM 300
    Kawboy
    Papalobster
    FDKLR
    Ethan
    Joel (Were did you go?)
    Hipster

    The weather this weekend was nice! Temps were in the mid 80's with cool nights. This years ride was significant departure from the previous WDT's. We included some singletrack loops to spice things up a bit. We were only able to tackle about half of the planned route. (aprox 100 mi.) We also met up with some of the JCTR's at the Crawford Hills parking lot as an added bonus! Nice to finally meet you Mark!! We did have a couple of injuries as indicated in the previous posts.

    DruiD (Ribs)
    Papalobster (Rib)
    Kawboy (smashed foot)

    As usual I didn't have a camera along! Silly monkey!:D FDKLR has the only pics..

    The riding was great as was the company!!

    Get well soon guys!!

    Also a big thanks to Jay for hosting this ride!!

    Damn Jay you don't crash very often but, when you do it's a big one. So the Wisconsin death trip lives up to its name, a broken back, 6 broken ribs, a punctured lung, Greg's possible broken foot and Joel scared off by Friday's gentlemans pre-ride.

    Brian, sorry about the dog shit on your tire, head and any where I stepped.

    Jay, I hope you recovery goes well and you get a chance to ride yet this summer. Ho, and your vacuum cleaner actually works!

    Did they use a plug or a patch on the lung?

    Well, if you get better fast, we're heading over to MI to ride the Atlanta trail system on the 14th. Shawn wanted to go, but was outvoted by his other 1/2.

    Talked with Jay this morning.

    He sounds much better although he is still dealing with some significant pain.

    Will remain in the hospital for a couple more days (minimum).

    No additional assistance needed right now.

    Seems like things are going well.
