thanks for posting the finish to the RR

That was a brilliant RR and I want to thank you for the effort. Epic doesn't begin to describe what you accomplished.

Thanks so much for a fantastic report. Puts the little drama's I create in my head on a little 2-3 day ride in Oregon or Arizona into perspective
