We had to prepare the wet wood under the canopy to start a fire. Chris likes to set up "one match" fires but it would be quite a challenge this week. Later on in the week we had enough of the wet wood and began to resort to "one match with a paper towel and oil" fires.
I'm assuming this is some sort of rain dance. Maybe he was trying to connect with the bike by wearing the fairing... Be the KTM, think like the KTM... If I was a KTM why would I be stalling?
