Getting Ready for Scramble Bee Rally
You could not see shit because of the rain and occasional, yet generous, splashes of mud on your face (open helmets, remember?). Not unusual was the sight of a lost and soaked rider who could not tell the route from the swamp or who ran out of fuel in the middle of nowhere. Did Scramble Bee Rally organizers mention it was 42 degrees F (6 degrees C)? One or two motorcycles got stuck in the mud. Someone injured his knee when the motorcycle fell on him (and could not walk for two weeks). The motocross track was totally submerged. With sweat from the inside and rain from the outside, everyone was wet to the underpants. Fun!
