Understatement.

I had a very bad day. Nothing went right. I got in soft stuff trying to make a turn...I went over and bruised my knee (new pads being ordered this week.) I fell in the water crossing as I was exiting. I fell again when the hill above the water crossing decided to add insult to injury and then there was the attempt to drive off a cliff.

The guy on the big 950 Adventure (Sito?) picked me up the first time. His advice got me through the next section. Thank you so much.

The next three were with Cathy and Dave (?). I had to take a break and eat a cliff bar. I was beaten. I was given some more lessons and things went much better but I was done. Thank you guys. You're angels.

This group will pick you up and give you a bit of advice too. I could not imagine learning without these guys.

I have a BIG bruise on my entire kneecap. I got really lucky. Yes, knee pads are being ordered this week. No trail until I have them.

Anyway, you guys ROCK!
