Yep. Nice work. Glad to see no major mechanicals. Very nice effort, and with a last minute sub as well. Molly said she saw the results on SleepMonster. May be more details there Stephen.

Nice Job. Did you see any gators?

Thanks guys. Will Eddy ("Buck") subbed for Brian Durand ("Rocketman") at the last minute. He did an awesome job and he's a hard core biker, which definitely helped us. We almost thought it was a cursed race - last Wednesday was a day full of problems (NWA lost Suzanne's luggage with race gear... Larry got a speeding ticket... etc.) Turned out nice in the end and shows the value of quick TAs.

Didn't spot any gators - the race officials said they're considerably less common in N Florida - but we saw deer, a couple armadillos, a feral pig, a huge corn snake, and lots of loudmouth dogs that everyone seems to keep down here.

O Steve!:
great race.....I still cant figure out why AR directors cant put CP's on features (no swamp CP's that you have to travel 500 meters on a bearing) and/or locate the CP's in the right place......vetting?....somtimes I get the feeling that some people that put on AR's want to hide the
CP's thinking it adds challenge when all it does is add frustration by introducing luck instead of navigation skill..........looks like you have factored thses things into your descion making and have learned to compensate for these issues that I think take away from can make things VERY challenging and have CP's on features and place them accurately...

by the way....I am not talking about local RD's....I keep reading about races in the AR hotbed...where these issues are almost constant...

Steve, thank you for the clarification about local RD's having higher standards ! Ian
