From the 1993 race report:
Ken Reynolds spent three hours at St. Elmos trying to catch a snake to put into Mark Perrow’s sleeping bag!
Ken Reynolds has many a tale but one that comes to mind is of him and his partner walking out of the valley furious with each other and each with only one shoe. In petulant mood they both tossed their one shoe away so neither could have shoes and trudged on kaalvoet through the thorns!
Rumour has it Ken’s famous in-depth interview he gave after winning the Umko in ____ won a Toastmasters’ Award. Full text of his speech:
“I’m glad that’s over!”
Swimmming down Old Buck rapid after rescuing their boat he was pleased (?) to see his partner Mark Conway running along the bank shouting “Well done, Kenny!”
