Holy shit scary about the fainting thing. I'm glad that fate choose to look favorably at you today. Sounds like you've learned a lesson about that, too. Wowzers.
I've been saved by gu at just the right time as well. Can pull you out of bonk pretty fast, glad you had one handy.
If we have snow at Xmas, I'll have some training courses at my house. Adrian likely as well at Craftsbury. Bring on the recruits!
