It was such a surprise to see you at the finish . One of those totally out of context moments I almost forgot who you were, well not really, you are not forgettable ;)
Anyway, good travels and hope to see you again, either here or WY or maybe on our coast.
It was almost my favorite thing that happened on all the day. I run into the Finish, I download, I step forward and wipe the sweat off my face which is threatening to drown my eyes, and the first person I notice out of all the many, many people under the Finish tent was you!
Actually it was my favorite thing that day, but the *next* day after all was said and done, a gang of IKHPare gathered and had pizza in the camping area, and with my pizza I had a cold Coke--the first soft drink I had had in a week--and that was so much my favorite thing that day it spilled out over for several days to either side and encompassed those days as well. So it can be.
Safe travels as well, and you are always welcome in the boom town known as Bosler (they don't call him "the Bosler Kid" for nothing), or even the small and quiet nearby suburb called Laramie.
Watch out for kolbottens, they are probably closer than you think.
