We had a little conversation with this 4WD driver at the sign-in station for the Jackson Cabin trail. I told the Honda riders that they should lead out. They really led out! I could not comfortably keep up with them. About half-way in I caught up to them waiting for me just before the hardest downhill part of the trail. They said that I should lead from then on. Clearly, they wanted someone with the wisdom to control the pace and to keep the speed within the safe range throughout the rest of the trail. We continued at a much more liesurely pace after that. So far, so good.
