I'd say try it and report back!
What could possibly go wrong?

Until the last line, I thought it was from a Heinlein novel...

Looks like a great Tour de MIL! I'll try to harbor pilot a leg some year.

@davester received a field promotion this year after harbor piloting in 2019. It's a slippery slope, pretty soon you find yourself spending a lot of personal chits so you can go riding with your buddies for a few days right after Christmas.

Long after finishing this ride, I realized why we had so much rain on Day 2.
@SwimmerMike rode with us that day. With a handle like that, we tempted the Bike Gods, and they provided.

Thanks to me you now have some great stories. If it was just a sunny ride, it would not have been nearly as epic. I'm glad I was able to make the ride more memorable.
