People getting run over, bikes boiling over, engine cases mangled, pants coming off... of course I'm in.

Probably in. I have some new lights to try out. Night on the trail is actually enjoyable now. I'll see if PR can find a sitter. If not maybe we'll just stuff the kid(s) in a backpack.

Everyone "In", has to donate and ride the Carousel of Happiness.

In full gear.

Otherwise, it won't be "Happy!"

Lights? We don't need no stinking lights!

I prefer riding by Braille.

The one year we had a full moon you could see really well. We stopped at the Rock House above Lock Lamond and thought "this is awesome! its like daylight! We don't need our headlights".

We tried to ride without them... it lasted all about 30 feet.

Being able to see well enough to walk and well enough to go fast are two different things

J&H was one of my riding highlights of last year. I'm bummed that I won't be able to make it this year due to that conflict.
