Crisis Averted

My little Toyota Yaris had an identity crisis this evening after a two-hour stint as an ATV.

At 6:00 PM, we received word that Team GMARA – with Kathy from ARMD adding the requisite estrogen to the mix – had been separated on the water.  Their canoe had flipped and team member Bert Johnson and his kayak ended up down river and out of sight.  
When the canoers called into Race Headquarters, I was dispatched to the Androscoggin River to help out with the search.  After two hours of following around the local EMT and scouring the riverbanks, we received word that the team had reunited and were back on course – but hadn’t thought to turn on their satellite phones and let race staff know.
