RAAM in AZ

Postby Ypsylon » Fri Jun 17, 2011 4:18 pm

One of my favourite events and I'd almost have missed it this year, so I figured I'd give y'all a heads up that the solo guys are on their way and in AZ right now.

RAAM is not on my to do list, but every time I think about it I need a second or two before I realize that I'm not quite nuts enough to do it. At least that's true for the solo.

Maybe we should send a FWB team one day...

This one is for nuts, that's for sure. Plus you have to qualify. Perhaps a four man team for the Furnace Creek 508 is a possibility.
I buy everything that JMT lists on this site.

508 miles = 817.546752 kilometers

35 000 feet = 10.66800 kilometers

Sounds like a good time.
