Thanks to Adam, Dillon and Jeff for talking me into doing the Freedom MTB Marathon on the weekend. We all seemed pretty prepared for the weekend. Friday afternoon Adams car blew up on the way to the camp site. I gave him a lift and then had to turn back after Jeff phoned and said he had forgoten his sleeping bags. Adam and I turned up at the camp site in the dark. We put the two tents up using Jeff's car jack as a hammer as none of us brought one... and I used Adams pegs as mine were not in the tent bag... Adam then found out he had left his jumper in his broken down car and walked around camp cocooned in his blanket. Jeff and his daughter shared a saucepan as a dinner and breakfast bowl. Adam forgot his riding knicks, so was dreading the 60kms he had ahead of him. Luckily the race was cut short. We had a nice relaxing lunch as we waited for everyone to finish the race. It was a beautiful day for a ride and we had some great time together in the wilderness. Thanks for a great weekend guys!
