Re: RC: staying awake

Hi Carol
Don't know if this is common, but when my kids and myself volunteered to
crew at the ROC in Utah a few years back, the last two riders were
either asleep or comatose--- almost ran over my new friend and myself as
we kept yelling "Turn Right! Turn Right! Turn Riiiiiiiight!!!!"
Fortunately they were both going at a walk and we were almost at the end
of the ride."
