On Thursday February 16th we waited all day for our rideshare Scott to show up.  We thought he was going to come in the morning but it turned into 8pm.  That’s what happens when you’re at the whim of another person’s schedule.  We loaded up our bikes and gear with Ira’s rope tying expertise.  As […]
