All I know is that my front tire made it farther up that hill than everybody else except the shirtless one.

True, I didn't "make it" but I was ten feet farther up than you all
Bottom line is that there were two bikes on top of that hill and a few others that turned around

Wow, Tim, that does look uncomfortable; hope you heal up quick . . .

Here's a picture of Tim walking back to his bike after sizing up the hill and picking the best line to the rut with all the rocks around it.

I think Rip Taylor's brother:ymca, the guy at the gas station who kept trying to give you first aid, wanted to treat the rest of those bruises with his special salve.

Hope you're feeling a little better Tim.

Nice pictures RAZR. You know I'm a professional model for that kind of carnage photography. I'm sorry I couldn't make that ride to give you some good material. Looks like some of the others stepped up their game in my absence. It's funny how the smallest hill out there caused so much trouble.

we had NO idea where everyone went. NO ONE was waiting at the top for us.
This is MAJOR league uncool and dangerous!

I always check my mirror and if I don't see anyone behind me, I check up until I do.

If someone doesn't show up in 5 minutes, that "usually" means something has happened from my experience, and need to double back to find the rider(s).

I thought we did a great job of accounting for everyone this past Sat!

exactly!
you are responsible for the guy behind you.
no more, "I thought you went the other way" or "I heard you went that way".
we had a hurt rider and we were trying assess(sp?) the situation until he said he was cool and we pointed him towards the highway(you could see the highway from the hill climb), then went on our way and found no one.

I could not agree more. But it should be a warning to all of us that even under the best conditions mistakes can still happen. This is a good example of one. The rules were being followed but a simple miscommunication put a big kink in the day. I have notice that a lot of the rider and rides are getting faster especially the desert rides. The old days of fire roads where you wait at the every trail change don't work as well in the desert.

This last Sat's ride I think went well and was a good example of how it can be done. The Key was not to get to far apart and to regroup more often and then push on. If your goal is to haul ass and ride as fast as you can then group rides may not be good for you. Desert riding is a different ball game, you can get lost and lose the pack in a second.

I really felt bad that we lost Razor (and the other guy) And to be honest I'm not to sure how it happened. It's a lesson learn for me.

Yep...failure for sure...

We got word that 3 riders were going around a hill instead of over it...so we circled back around to the bottom of the hill only to learn that 2 riders did indeed go over...at that point we sent riders in multiple directions to find them..After 30+ minutes we decided to continue to the "lunch" spot..where we found the lost souls..

on an earlier trip, I was riding with Sito when the rider in front of him falied to wait at an intersection. At this point Sito did the correct thing (like a lost hiker). He Stopped and waited. I was able to backtrack to find him and the rider behind him.

There is no cure-all answer but as a rule if when you lose the group....Stop...we will retrace and find you...
