Team Tenacious Turtles (S.Trussler, J.Garnhum, A.Harding) 9100 points 1/17 teams in Rec-24 We headed SE to 204 and lined up for the chance to punch, then headed down to 129 where the line up wasn’t as bad but I scared a few other teams as I stripped off a couple of layers I was already overheating.

We’ve all learned a few things since then, but some habits never change, such as the night-before pasta feed. Steve and I hungrily tucked in, listening to the rain. … Continue reading

Way Too Phat (R.Tibert, G.Moore) 3600 points 12/27 teams in PC-24 Course Time: 23 hours As usual the January snow and cold induced our need to again (since 2001, SAR challenge) to register to “race”. Feet have long since healed and the toe nails have returned in full form.
