How do you respond? (other than swearing, which is what I did).
Bob was 67 when we did this ride. Later we found that he had a bruised rib, two broken fingers, and a mild concussion. He continued riding 45-50 miles of really tough terrain to get home.
We had no cell phone, my wife was our emergency responder, if we didn't get home by midnight she was to notify S&R. There were other people on the trail, most were planning on spending the night.
This could have been a fatal situation. Fortunately is was just really painful. It took Bob about three months to recover, he wants to know when we are going to do the TAT.
Tough Old Guy, I respect him a lot.
