    How the hell did you end up at Marinelli's? That's nowhere near where you guys were riding.

    You must have been riding on the pavement for a while. Did you go down a fairly large hill on the road you were on?

    Wow, you did some riding to get to Marinelli's. Glad you found your way out of the woods at least.

    FYI, Brain and I are more considerate than Greg if any of you beginners are looking to go out riding We might not get 2knees out riding with stories like this

    I can vouch for this! Brian has always taken good care of me while riding, but Jeff has also been quite considerate when leading with any newbs. I'll also add Tim to that list.

    In Greg's defense he's real good at stopping at trail merges usually. The trail that Steve apparently took is not very obvious so I don't think Greg even saw it until he was going back to find Steve.

    I actually felt terrible about Steve getting lost since I knew he didn't know the area. The spot where Chris and I stopped was the only intersection that I knew about on that trail. After we backtracked, the other one is more obvious when coming from the other direction. Leave it to Steve-O to find the obscure turn! Just glad we all got out safely. The storm that came through after we got out was a ripper. Wild lightning on the drive home.

    Wow. Way to toss me under the bus.

    What you fail to realize, my dear, is that I have more respect and confidence in your riding skill than those other dopes. They want to hold your hand; I want you to challenge yourself!

    not to mention that you probably had no reflectors on the bike or yourself.
