If for some reason you didn't get there today I can volunteer to do it Tuesday afternoon. I work up in Saratoga and can take a few hours off. Only if it doesn't rain though!

Got it done, but thanks for the offer. I wanted to get out today because the weather report for Tuesday doesn't look good.

Thanks again for all!

I had my camelbak with me, but took a couple of cups of liquid by #17. The second cup I poured into the first so the second could be re-used. Standard practice, I would have thought, but the guys manning the table said I was the first.

I'm looking forward to RG, but there's no time pressure...

Neil, I guess you got them thinking. When I got there I was prepared to take a second cup and I was reminded that I could just get my first cup refilled.

The people who come whippin through early on didn't give us a chance to refill or to refill themselves... by the end we wanted to make sure we didn't run out of cups (guy at #17)

Thanks for your help, Will!

You and Sue L. (and Candi later on) did a great job. It's kinda lonely out there, but fun once folks start streaming through. Then a bit lonely again (can you tell I've done the job before?), before they tell you that you can return.

I didn't ever feel bored. Got out there just in time, first runner came through right when Glen predicted, and it was pretty steady through runner #90 or so. Amusing to watch all the different ways the oxygen-deprived navigating led people.
