2nd for boat #2621 this year.
 
DNF at the confluence with the Osage.  Pitched a sun shelter with the space blanket and waited for the best Safety Boats in the world.  Faster kayak this year than the one I finished in last year, but unless you get seat fitment right, you will suffer.

And echo what Jeff said above.

Bob Hines and I tossed boats back in the river.  Unfortunalty we were at the finish line.

That makes 3 race years for both of us and 1 "official" volunteer year.  Although we accept the legal disclaimer stating we have no offiliation and that anything said by Bob cannot be used against the race or any other vounteer or official.

Hey Scott please update me to 10 solo finishes. There's nothing amazing about it you just keep going until the finish and don't give up. I couldn't have done it without my ground crew Loretto. She made me get back in the boat whether it was cold and dark or hot and sunny. A ground crew who encourages the paddler to continue and not give them reasons to drop out is Priceless!
