After a while, Shrimper left us alone. Rick headed down the off map trail to check it out and reported that it was overgrown and did not seem to be a good option. Tom K rode into the gap armed with a pack of Oreos to share. He hung out for a while and helped us heckle.
We had decided to leave around 5:30pm, but hungry people kept riding up, so we just kept grilling. we figured that the more we handed out, the less weight we would have on the way back down.
