For those wondering why there have been no updates to this ride report, Lakota crashed and is in the ICU at University Medical Center in El Paso. Stalwart that he is, after crashing and regaining consciousness, he rode his bike 60 miles to the emergency room in Deming NM. A CT scan showed bleeding on the brain and he was transported to the nearest trauma unit in El Paso. Your should see the damage to his Schuberth helmet. Two more CT scans show the bleeding has stopped, but now the doctors are concerned about an irregularity they have noticed in his heart beat. So the saga continues and the younger of the Ancient Mariners is more than ready to go home. Just ask his doctors and Nurses.
