So Alex concocted this scheme which fit just right with his gaming strategy of ``think fast and act faster'' - hey, it got him campus Union Board championship last year!
He would collect data every three minutes. By then Hayden would be back and they could mid-course correct if they needed to do something different. Hayden did not call back.
Indeed, when Alex did get hold of him about an hour into the run he got, ``Don't bother me now. I met this girl!'' Later there was no answer on his cell phone. Hmmmmm!
