I'm a little rusty on the details, so this story might be all wrong, but it went something like this. . .
Nick and his cousins, Brian, Kevin and Craig (AKA Babushka, El Guero, and Le Francois ) did an adventure race in Northern Michigan--that's canoeing, mountain biking, and orienteering.
Biking, which took them a lot longer than expected. For a number of reasons.
They got lost.
There was a little bit of standing water.
And Nick's bike broke, leaving poor Nick and (mostly) Kevin to pedal miles and miles one foot-ed while Craig took one for the team and headed back in the van.
Despite the biking drama, they were still middle of the pack, giving them time to dust off those BSA skills and do some orienteering.
Final quiz: Match each cousin to the appropriate race finish response:
A) Never again, ever
B) Not any time soon
C) I could do that again
D) Let's do it right now!
