DNF Runaway Truck Ramp

7/15/2013 8m
Today was reported to be a very hot day, so S and I met quite early on the Montour Trail at Boggs (MP11).

There had been quite a bit of rain a few days before and we weren't certain what we'd encounter. There were signs of some major washouts on the packed limestone surface but also signs of a lot of repair efforts. Unfortunately, the repairs were still in progress and there were several sections where you'd encounter wide areas of deep, soft sand - it was like riding into a runway truck sandpile on the highway.

After doing that for a while it seemed like Type 3 Fun, so we reversed and decided that Today Was Not That Day, choosing to save the time for another ride. DNF (did not finish)
