This was a nice, short trip ... well, not exactly. We had complications. See, there was this willow patch at the base of Bear Mountain. Which we penetrated. And which turned out to be a real forest, and in which we were stuck and entwined in the Willows for an hour... and in which Kenny's cordless electric chain saw saved the day and we were able to back out of the forest and find a better way.

Riders were:

Kenny Shapiro,
George Shoemaker and
