That guy was pretty cool, I hope we see him again next year. I spoke with him briefly Sunday AM. And I was thinking about him later as both my hands were going numb on the incessant pound-and-vibrate surfaces back to Kila. I was thinking "At least ONE guy I know on this ride has at least ONE hand that's not going numb."
