Tardy forgot to mention that he sat up and kept the light on until midnight while I was trying sleep. Remember Saturday afternoon when I advised against that nap, Tardy?

He also didn't mention his test ride down the hallway of the hotel in the middle of the night to make sure his bike was working properly.

Thanks for the Cliff Bar though, bro.
