Wallet and cellphone survived the dunking.

We will have to rely on PW to eloquently relate the details of the whole sordid mess. I had started to get my GoPro, but alas, it needed a charge.

The rest is hearsay.

Yes ! Very well marked. I hit it square - isn't that what you are suppose to do with orange cones? Must have knocked it off the trail so Skid didn't see it...

I tell you what - three days of riding wore me out. Damn I was tired. I wonder how I will feel when I get old...

Promised awesome vids are just that - promised...

No photos of Skid but there is a quick video of me being stupid.

Eased around a corner to see huge log... no problem - plenty to time to raise my hand for warning and hit breaks in the mud at the same time... results were not what I wanted...

Busted my hand with the bark busters...



Lucky I kept riding for the next two days so the swelling is not bad today...

Maybe 3rd time will be a charm. Look forward to seeing the video.

Hope your hand is still feeling better. I impaled a center drill into mine day before yesterday.... its like we're connected. Nothing a super-glue soaked piece of tissue couldn't patch up.

Works good and I like the way you captured all the different angles including the shots from the ground when you were passing by.... Good stuff. Couldn't tell what happened on your get-off?? Did your hand slip off the grip?
