Big kudos for Tim in both organizing this and his leadership. A couple things about how Tim handled this that stood out. This is how Rising Sun rolls!
  • Driver meeting: expectations were communicated - this is the trail we are doing and here is how it is going to be
  • Give enough time for everyone to get ready to roll
  • As a mother hen, the leader makes sure everyone is keeping up. When there is trouble, stop, get out and see what's going on
  • Stop (see the recurring theme here?) and make sure everyone is keeping up
  • Keep up the communications "we are turning left here"

Props to Bruce Lawson on tailgunning and making sure everyone was doing okay. The FJC in front of me was having traction issues on the switchback due to line selection. To make sure he wasn't going to slide into me I drove around him to give him room to maneuver, parked at the top as Tim was coming down to help spot him and give him advice. Again, a Rising Sun thing, Tim was the only spotter, no conflicting commands.

Another great run, and THANK YOU Tim for being a great trail leader!
