The Hardest CAC …….. Post I’ve Ever had to Write

It is with great sadness that I must inform you that we will not be providing you with free CAC. We originally planned to pleasure all of you with our CAC on April 5th, but that just isn’t going to happen.

Crying over our CAC

Sorry, James Van Der Beek. No CAC for you.

Whether you believe it or not, Bob and I have poured a crap-ton of work, not to mention our hearts and souls, into working on our CAC last year as well as the year before, the Deuce 3 years ago, and the First Team Virtus Non-Race the year before that (clearly we didn’t come up with good names for our Adventure Non-Races until the second year).

We’ve spent a lot of time away from our families as well as quite a bit of our own money to give you the best, free non-racing experience we could.

And we’ve loved every damn minute of it.

But we just don’t have time to get our CAC polished and ready by April 5th. Bob is now living in Ellisville and remodeling his house there, and my life is crazier and busier than ever with kid activities and other miscellaneous miscellany. It’s been really difficult for us to put our heads together and really work hard on our CAC.


Bob likes to use all of his senses when working on his CAC. This photo was taken on a scouting trip from last year, and it was not staged. For real. Bob just really enjoys tubed meat.


So we’ve decided to postpone the CAC this year. We did not come to this decision lightly. We toyed with the idea of changing venues. We thought about using a permanent Trim course at Rock Bridge or Rockwoods Range to save us some time and hassle. We even considered doing an Urban Adventure Non-Race. We’ve thought about a lot of different ways we could provide you with our CAC again this year.

But in the end, we figured no one would want a soft, lifeless CAC, and we don’t want to offer you anything half-assed. And that’s exactly what it would have been if we had tried to put it together by April 5th.

We sincerely apologize. We hope you don’t hate us. And we hope we haven’t messed up anyone’s plans.

We’re still considering doing the Cinco-De-CAC-O (it would be our fifth year!) sometime later this year. If you’d be interested in that, please let us know in the comments. If there’s not much interest, we won’t waste our time.

We’ve also considered just doing a campout at Pine Ridge or somewhere else the weekend of April 5th just to get together and ride/drink/eat half-priced-meat together (Maybe at Two Rivers?). So let us know if you’d be down for anything like that as well.

Again, we apologize. We hope you can forgive us. We hope you don’t hate us forever.

Seriously. Please let us know if you want to see our CAC at a later date and if you’d want to get together somewhere the first weekend of April. Do it! Leave us a comment.

  1. i will never hate you or your respective CACs forever. by all means, this is your event and you get to say how it goes, or doesn’t go. of course i will be interested in your CAC at a later date!!

  2. You assholes…nah, actually, thanks for the races, they’ve been a blast. Memories I won’t ever forget. If you do end up scheduling a race, my vote is for the fall. Now that I think of it, you’re still assholes, just because you probably need to be told that.

  3. If the meat provided is turkey, you could call it the Knob Gobbler.

  4. I was super-bummed about having to miss it on April 5th. So I’m definitely interested in a re-scheduled event later in the year!

  5. I am bummed but totally understand. I would definitely be up for a later date. Thanks for previous years those CACs will never be forgotten.

  6. I am busy the morning of the 5th, but might be game for an evening of fun with friends (am I welcome if I don’t want to camp out?). You might also consider doing the campout the following weekend after the Ava Brown 5K so the gang only has to travel once (unless of course the whole idea is to drag everyone together two weekends in a row). Just a thought. Since I haven’t learned how to not get lost in the woods (or any of the other adventure racing skills), I’m not as broken up by the postponement of the CAC though I’d have been willing to man an aid station or whatever (and still will for future reference if schedule allows).

  7. It just makes me sick that we have to postpone this. But know this: The CAC will rise again, and when it does…you better be ready. I’ve got a lot of work left to do on the new house, but when that’s done it’ll be time to do some serious scouting.

    Todd and Brian: I own a stand-up deep freeze now and will soon be fully stocked with all your campfire-meat requirements.

    The CAC will never die. Landmarks will be discovered, maps will be printed and minds will be blown to shit.
