That's siiiick! 8-hr. trail run?! Wt will feel like a walk in the park, or maybe the dark.

This is great. I'm not even going to have to carry a pack for WT.

Whoa, there folks. The FKT is just less than 4 hours so we were not cookin' by any stretch. Honestly, even with the rain and cold we stopped to just check it all out on several occasions. Hansel, put that one on the list for the next time you and Harps make it out here. We'll fire it off in 6h30m.

He's sandbagging... took me 2 days. :-)

He should carry the whole teams packs!

I change my comment to: "it took you twice as long as the FKT? Man, what took you so long?! You are gonna get your a$$ handed to you by a bunch of kids at WT who don't even know what EcoChallenge was!"

That's not a nice or apt description of Team Snowpants!

Did you see the 'film' .. Traversing Wild? I thought it was pretty well done.. those 'kids' are likely to be better this year than last. It's hard not to like them... I tried and gave up :-)

FYI they had my brother stand in for my Q&A... he looks much older and phatter than me. ;-)

Haven't seen it yet. We'll have to rent it before WT this so as to get extra psyched up.

It will psych you up all right. FB's "brother" gives such sage advice you can't help but be motivated to get Bob the Beaver back from those kids.

Just watched it...finally. Joel et al did such a good job at putting that all together. I especially liked the racecourse footage from the first half. Drones and HD cameras have changed everything! Oh, and that hunky, 'experienced' gentleman spoke with such wisdom...
