Also, keep in mind the riding should be a lot more fun once everything is done. In the preruns we have to stop a lot to make notes, deal with unexpected blockages, and other problems that take away from the fun. The prerun before last was a big failure and no fun for most who came along.
You are obviously a tried and true bona fide ADV guru but your statements above still make me wonder if you're just not getting it. Getting lost, coming across unexpected obstacles, locked gates, no trespassing signs, deteriorating weather, etc. etc. all IMPROVE the experience, not lesson it! Geez don't you get that!
