"Ode to Joy?" Roadkill misunderstands Danger Man's quote "Ocian in view! O! the joy" from William Clark's expedition journal, upon seeing what he thought was the Pacific in 1805. We observe Lake Needwood as Danger Man concludes his MCRRC race series with a ~10k trek. Course Marshal Roadkill forgets his trekking pole at home; the first stick he tries is weak and bits break off repeatedly, until he is hobbling hunched over. Fortunately Half Full identifies a replacement that serves wonderfully. Another candidate staff is huge enough to part the waters, or perhaps turn into a monstrous snake.
