    trip report of a different kind

    Here is a trip report of the 12 hour Natchez Trace Adventure race in Tennessee. It consisted of riding bikes, canoeing, orientering, running, and just a very long day
    I know it is not hiking but I had a pack on my back for 12 hours


    Enjoy

    hey BEAS, thanks for posting that. Two things struck me in particular.
    1. at the beginning when you were doing a run-down on your gear, you did
    that for several minutes without a transition, without an "umm", or "duh", or sticking your finger in your nose, or anyone of the other things that plague me when I shoot. For me to get out 90 consecutive seconds....takes 5 or 6 shots. You're good.

    2. Really appreciate you taking the effort to shoot footage in the midst of this race, complete with missed checkpoints, made it interesting to watch.


    When you showed you taking a canoe loaded with a bicycle on some point in the trek, I couldn't help but think of those puzzles where you have to get chicken and a fox and a bag of chicken feed across a river without the fox eating the chicken or the chicken eating the seed. Give us some time, we'll work up a puzzle you all have to solve to ferry you and the bikes, and get that to the organizer for next year.

    thanks for making the vids and showing them here.

    Good stuff BEAS. I never got into adventure racing, but mountain bike racing and trials riding were my thing.
    I am not a gram weenie. , But Im starting to see the merits!!!

    5th place finish

    Thanks for the comments.
    We finished 5 out of 12. One minor error cost us a potential win. Very happy overall.
