Nice synopsis, Eric!

(Note it says "ride" If you got two certs for the same ride, (nesting), that doesn't count as two rides, only one.)
In one of the multitude of threads here about ride nesting, the term I used for descriptive purposes is 'line of demarcation'. There has to be a clear distinction that one ride ended, some period of time elapsed, then another ride began.

Ken, the "line of demarcation" is what made it perfectly clear to me and the light bulb stopped fluttering for once (I believe it actually popped haha) about nesting rides. I believe you shared this explanation with another group of enablers on a different forum, which cleared up may questions there as well. You have a good way with words. Now get that wrist healed up so the wing can twist it!

I like that terminology, but it's not completely true for nested rides. I absolutely agree that there has to be a clear distinction that one ride ended. Well put, and that confuses some people first looking at the nested ride idea. But by the nature of a nested ride, I don't see the need for what you call 'some period of time elapsed' before the next ride begins. Nested rides in some cases share a start point/time.

Take SS1K and BB1500 for example. You get one start receipt for both rides, you follow the basic rules of the ride and get an end receipt before 24 hours documenting your SS1k. But you're feeling good, so you head back out to do 500 more before the 36 hour window cuts off on the BB1500. Maybe you took a nap or slept for X hours after the SS1K, but the start was the same for both rides, so there isn't a line of demarcation, as I understand your use of that term. A line of demarcation would be two distinct rides, each with a separate starting receipt in different locations.

Doing a BB1500 in 36 hours does not by default mean you did a SS1K, so its a valid nested ride scenario. I know a few people that missed the 24 hour window on their SS1K attempts, so got some sleep and pushed on for the 1500 in 36 hour BB1500 ride with success.
