Time for a new type of trophy? The injury trophy doesn't quiet fit this occurrence does it?
How about the slumber party with your bike trophy or maybe, I'll be home for dinner, maybe, honey trophy?
Glad you didn't push the limits and will be able to talk about it at the end of the day.
If this has not happened to you yet then you havn't lived. A space blanket is a good emergency tool to have with you also.

How about the "Big bike friendly, back by noon trophy"?

I wish I could help Tuesday. It looks like Tom found a fun trail!

just saw this after a weekend of riding BY MYSELF.

Glad you have been found Tom-what an experience eh!!

Mil is right-if this hasn't happened to you once, you haven't lived!! or atleast pushed the envelope a bit.

I hope I have the ability to "get lost" by happenstance when I am your age. I just hope I can still balance on 2 wheels when i am your age!! Not that age has anything to do with it-but dang-I hope i am still able to do the riding you do Tom. .

I've been checking HERE several times since this was posted yesterday. It seems tomorrow (Tuesday) has been picked as the extraction day but so far no ideas or details have been coordinated... time, place???
My window is shrinking rapidly.

Fixed.

On a side note, I got a $20 that once up and over that first rock shelf, it will be a "ride out" situation.

Also, I am off work tomorrow and can help if needed.
