The Kenda Titus Hayes team met up in Phoenix Thursday for a mini team camp. It was great to meet everyone including ultra endurance racers Danielle Musto and Hillary Harrison who have a different race schedule than the rest of us.
It rained Friday, turning the long dirt road to the OP venue into a muddy slip n slide. There was a long string of traffic headed in and I was really worried that the van would get stuck and block everyone. Luckily I made it in and found our team area which Jim at Kenda had set up for us, a great place to stage and stay dry. It started snowing on and off that evening; my teammates, team director and mechanic decided a wet 25 degrees was too cold for camping and risked the road out to find a hotel. I crashed in the van and never slept so well. I woke up at 1:00am to find the place crazy quiet and covered in over an inch of snow. I was too sleepy to find the camera so went back to bed, the snow had pretty much melted when I woke up.
