Anyway, I am happy about the humanity people are showing this guy here on LRC. Don't forgive and forget yet though. The cover ups and enablers( you know who you are). Those guys are more part of the problem.
Yeah, whatever sympathy I have for RY (and it's pretty limited) does not extend to the guys in the crew. Not only are they clearly fabricating stories and information, they are putting this guy at pretty significant physical risk to chase a record that they should all know they can never get honestly. I'm not letting RY off the hook for anything, but I have some understanding of how a guy who is exhausted from running however far he was running in the heat could make some questionable decisions. If you're sitting in an RV most of the day, though, you have no excuses for watching a guy almost kill himself.
