(unofficial - whatever that means)
Everyone has bad days. Poor Rob thought he was having one
too. First the gremlins stole his brand new camera. Then
he lost his footpod for his Polar HRM. But the demons of the
deep wilderness weren't done yet.
Then Rob lost the trail markers and had to back
track... a lot. When we caught up with Rob he was fully engulfed
in what the locals call "Wilderness Rage" or "Poopy
By the time Rob crossed the finish line, it
wasn't really Rob at all. So it was easy to forgive and
forget and we hope Rob will try Wakely again in 2008. Besides...
it's good material for this page.
Rob, Thanks for the memories... and thanks for
the new "Wakely Salute!"
See you in 2008!
UPDATE: All's well that ends
Someone found Rob's footpod later that day and nearly two months later
a hiker found his camera along the trail... and it still worked.
It was identified by the photos taken before the start of the race and turned
over to the DEC.
