Wow, that is amazingly consistent, considering that you probably weren't trying for it.
"Main difference being .... and a snowshoe raid"
Your welcome. Get your ass back to the SSR. It is a great motivator for early winter and all the cool kids are doing it.
Trav will sell you on why you should do the SSR better than me.
You will need to find a new partner though but Ben can do the nav for you.
And as I recall I was in terrible shape when we did that race in 2010.
No sales job required. It's my favourite of the raids.
If Ben has concerns racing with you he can always call 911 during the race. ;-)
Probably would have to if we were counting on the colour blind to lead the map blind out of the woods. Question is would we make it to the payphone?
