Garrett Mays looks back as Bett Adams, center, and Luke Scott run the rapid "Road Construction" while boating Tuesday on Suck Creek in Marion County, Tenn. Mays, Scott and a few other friends completed a "vertical mile" last weekend, making 21 consecutive runs down Suck Creek, descending 5,280 feet during their 11-hour ordeal.
