Oh man, my lap just over, it was the “throw away,” forgot my pack and had to run over to our pit to get it, then my skin comes off about 5 min up the course, back down to the pit for my spare skis, then finally up up up. Full moon, incredible!
Comments from team Generation Gap and friends:
Luke, “My favorite thing, cruising down in the dark — and getting to the top of that big hill. Stars moon, really fun going up in the dark.
Lisa, “I have to get Andrew some potato soup.”
Poly’s favorite thing (after 15 laps) “Going down.”
Drew, “It’s a lot of fun (half way into it, anyway), and I have a feeling Noelle is going to talk me into this again.”
Andrew, after who knows how many laps, “A bit tired now, but it’s already the biggest day I’ve ever done.”
