      Andrew, sorry it is too late. Most of the team is rushing to complete their gear prep. There is just no time left to bring you up to speed. Hopefully we'll have another chance soon.

      Cool, no prob. Looks pretty hardcore and would be very hard to get ready in time. My bad for checking so late

    Who needs a ride? In case of nobody needs a ride, I would like to hitch a ride with someone to avoid driving solo.
