AYG back to the farther-away-than-expected cars.
Lots of opportunities for racing this morning. From my position in the middle of the pack, it looked like Intel, Checkpoint and Kirk traded off the lead most of the morning.
Special thanks to Intel for letting me grab on to him as I went down the hill during the indian run. I was proud that I stayed upright.
Welcome to FNG Vortex (Calvin). I was trying to think of a good Presbyterian nickname for him (John Calvin), but didn’t come up with it til I got home – TULIP. We’re going to need to recruit another Calvin just for that handle.
Thanks to Hopper for a great first half. It made the second half rough.
Good word from Mall Cop to remember each other’s needs between workouts. Pray for The Rock (the guy, not the site).
I think there were others, but my son called me during the COT, so I lost the recording from here. Sound off in the comments.
