Anybody need a ride?
Anyone up for recovery drinks at the Corkscrew afterward?
I'm leaving Carlsbad in a pickup truck late Friday morning, am taking the 395 North, and have room for a bike and a body. I seriously stunk it up last year (6:57 & 14th), partly by hypothermia*, not having a room reservation (and having to drive like crazy from some foul-smelling casino hotel room in NV, and therefore not getting a decent breakfast) and from not stopping enough for water.
I learned my lessons though and am shooting for a sub 6:30 this year. We'll see what the wind does though!
* If the forecast in Death Valley says "High 70's", it will definitely be MUCH colder up at Daylight Pass! Bring a light jacket at the VERY least!)
