Congrats, They were the only two. 2 of us had equipment issues and the other came down because I was his ride. I am already searching the NET to replace that gear so I can make another winter attempt. Dave and Natalie, good work.

Thanks!!! Waggs - we had "to move it, move it", as it was darn cold and windy :)

Good job guys!
