    And I got through it last night in the pouring rain without an issue.
    Sorry to hear this but two things: 1) you've said elsewhere that the welt is the size of a kiwi, so which type of fruit is it?; and 2) if you went to HDCC, this would not have happened, just sayin'.

    Knowing NPS, it might take a 5 years after deciding to do this to get it o the schedule. And deciding might take another 5.

    Maybe a little pirate sand painting is justified?

    Watched a guy wipe out on the Trollheim on my commute home. I was coming down the hill from the TR bridge. He passed me going pretty fast and then low sided out as soon as he hit the wooden part. If I had to guess he was going 18-20 mph. He got up quickly and said he was alright. He was definitely going too fast for the wet conditions, but that’s not always well known.
