“The word adventure has gotten overused. For me, when everything goes wrong, that’s when adventure starts” -Yvon Chouinard
A couple of things:
I’m looking at what adventures/races the mountains and trails will bring my way in 2013. Angeles Crest 100 is a given, and is the focus. Other than that, several other possibilities: Ray Miller 50M (fun and local), Old Goat 50M (would make four years in a row), Backbone Trail (the inaugural race, or perhaps an unsupported fastpack), R2R2R (Grand Canyon rim to rim to rim), Bishop High Sierra races always looked cool as well. Anywho, plenty of time to ponder all that.
Here are a couple of cool projects of other people in contrasting mountains.
Kilian Jornet travels (quickly) over Mont Blanc from the Italian town of Courmayeur to Chamonix, France. So cool. Check out the video.
Nikki Kimball + the Long Trail record attempt= awesome.
