At Falcon Ridge I arrived late due to the fact I had stayed to earn fund raising money. There was afternoon rain and crowded camping.  Cars were sliding in the mud on the campsite areas.  Camping in damp mud and got very little sleep.  I awoke to a flat tire and spent the morning remedying that, after which I gave in to fate and drove home.
