Thanks to you, Jim, and everyone else that organizes these events! I didn't get a chance to participate last year, and it really showed on Sunday. This was, sadly, the longest ride I think I've done in about 18 months. We made decent time to the first control, but then long climbs, bad navigation skills, and poor physical preparation made for a day that was a lot more challenging than it should have been. Also, what was the official time limit to finish this ride? The control cards said Jim's House (final control) closed at "15:40" which my military training tells me was 3:40pm. The ride description says "8:40 time limit", which would mean a cutoff time of 5:40pm (based on the starting time of 9am). For future reference, which was the correct time limit?
