Beamster it is nice to get your perspective on things and not just the guys all the time.

It also cracks me up when the guys are taking about having some trouble or a bad day and then include a photo of you with a big smile on your face.

Colour of water...

That Blue in the water is hypnotic, looks like Arctic water, cold and blue! Is the mineral in the rock there giving it that texture of a combonation of mountain fed, plus temperatrure? Either way, awesome shots...

Just Finished Catching Up...............

At risk of over-stating the obvious - EPIC!!!

I have learned a few things here:

1. There is no such thing as reality TV compared to this type of adventure.

2. I am sick of the Great Recession and going on my next big ride this coming year. Like another inmate said, "do it while you still have your health"

3. I really love my dogs.

Well done TEAM, and I know you've got plenty more!!!!!

The color of the water is due to the fact that those streams/rivers are fed by melting glaciers.

Prutsers bike

Anyone know where I can find out all the details on prutsers bike? I have a /5 I'd like to rebuild into an "adventureish" bike and am looking for inspiration.

On third thought, I would have turned around. Well, maybe not if I had gotten that far, but honestly I would feel uncomfortable WALKING across those logs, let alone pushing a boxer!
