And we're running. And going to the climbing gym. And bodyweight stuff. And kettle bells. And rucking at elevation. And doing an orienteering competition. I hope some of this works, because I need to upgrade the weapon chassis.

5 teams out of 37 completed the course last year. Some of those teams did it in 19 - 23 hours, and some did it in 60 - 63 hours. We're not trying to win; we're trying to: a) finish, and b) not take more than 36 hours to do it.
This is so cool...

You've clearly lost your mind...it's going to be awesome.

Looks like some people sleep, and some people don't. Still trying to get a handle on that, but I see that before you take off, you and your gear are subject to a drug dog sniffing, so im guessing that various forms of non-prescription goodies are not allowed.
