Drivetrain Snafu

So, somewhere in the last 140 miles on my bike (105 of which was all one trip to Chicago and back, 12 hrs of riding, stopping, eating, etc) I lost 3 of the remaining 4 of my chainring bolts. Then on a quick 15 mile jaunt, the whole thing fell apart unexpectedly and I was suddenly up an interesting creek lacking a propulsion device. Literally. I lowered my seat and "kicked/ran/scootered" my way home after removing the chain. Thanks to a good buddy, all 5 bolts are now replaced and loc-tited this time. The adventure yielded at least 25 mosquito bites.
