    PMBAR was a blast!

    Four years ago I did my first pmbar and was blown away by how amazing of an event it was. After finishing my fourth pmbar yesterday I am just as impressed.

    Thanks to all the racers, volunteers and most of all pisgahproductions for another amazing day in the woods!

    You're welcome and THANK YOU! Like I said in the pre-race meeting: We just provide the vehicle for the good time. Without you guys it would just be Erinna and I in the woods. Without you all being there would be no event. Thank YOU for coming out....

    I think one reason so many people have a great time at PMBAR is that we have a great time at PMBAR, too. Plotting the course, Setting the CP's, Race Day, all of it.... (Well, putting everything away today is a bear but...) We enjoy doing it all for you guys. It's our pleasure.

    Double Dare dates will be announced this week.
    You can please some people sometimes but you can't please all the people all the time.

    4. FS 5000 2.5 miles up from N. Mills River campground
    5. FS225 at the gate.
    You can please some people sometimes but you can't please all the people all the time.

    Great job !

    Format was perfect - enough extra checkpoint tension to make things interesting,
    without having to stay up 'til midnight to see how you did. I was expecting to see
    some stuff on the west side, but I ain't complaining.

    What a day... have Squirrel or Turkey Pen ever been that buff?

    Highlight of the day - Can't decide between Tomato putting bleach in his eye,
    or watching K****z retch up a handful of half dissolved salt tabs and a cup o' bile.
    Hard core.

    ZB
    Yeah, it's strange. But oh well.

    This was my first PMBAR and I had so much fun my legs still hurt.

    Man, for the Pilot/Laurel CP half the challenge was picking which way to go. My partner and I went back and forth- do we go for the longer ride up laurel, or the short but heinous hike-a-bike up pilot rock. Lets just say that will be the last time I ever push my bike up the pilot rock trail.

    Thank you Eric and all the volunteers and sponsors!
    Abba Zaba, you my only friend....

    we also put in 55 miles. not sure how much of it was the push up pilot?

    the technical, gnarly single track really slowed us down - particulary on squirel. my teammate went down the side of the mountain on it. twice.
    navigation is key to finding your way around.
