I assume you mean this: Congrats on getting Oxford too... I also got Belford early this year while skipping Oxford due to insane wind. Nice going!

Should be fixed now.

that toenail is toast... where do you live Brady?

The toenail is still hanging on. I live in CO springs.

I too lost my left toenail from Belford last year. Coming down the shoulder, my foot just kept slamming into the front of my boot. The nail turned black, then looked fine a week or so later and I actually lost it 2 months later.
