Jul-10: Get 'Er Dunn 102 km Perm Pop

"What's done in Dunn is done."
 A corollary to "some things should be left on the ride and not in the blog."

What's done in Dunn is done.
Also similar to "what happens in Vegas stays in Vegas."

Apparently there is concern that the "Associated Press" might leak things that were off the record.
A similar comment was made Irregularly some time back.

What's done in Dunn is done.
And that's about all I'm allowed to type about.
However, I think it will be safe to note the following: 

Sridhar invested in a Profile Design double water-bottle cage that attaches to his seatpost.
I heartily approve.
Sridhar reported, at ride's end, that he thought the extra water on board helped on the "bonk front".
All will likely heartily approve.

MikeH was hoping to SR this year (now that he's recovered from early-spring(?), cold-weather-induced nerve damage.  Maybe he still is hoping; but I checked the RUSA website for remaining brevets of the correct distances, and unless one is willing to ride eastern mountains and / or do some signficant travel, an ACP SR seems unlikely.

JayJay got ahead of the other four of us by the simple expedient of not stopping for additional water near the Johnson County Line.  But then, something familiar happened.  No need to type anew, I'll copy from a previous report:  We came up JayJay "under a shade tree near the top of long grade"; but she wasn't waiting to reverse-dump.  Well ... she might have been, but three of us waited her out.

Dean, other than being the route owner, made only one contribution that I can both recall and I'm allowed to type about:  he made a miscalculation or typographical error of the closing time of the final control, and devilishly enjoyed JayJay's confusion when she thought she was "Hors Delay" for the day.  A couple of others may have contributed to the atmosphere, but all credit should go to the route owner whenever possible, don't you agree?

Me?  I can't recall anything I did about which I'm allowed to type.

What's done in Dunn is done.

  1. Oh, I recalled something about which I can type:

    I've been looking at the second floor shutters on a particular house. The control card clearly indicates first-floor. No wonder I've been recording the wrong answers.
