Yes, I plan to run and walk and climb about 70 miles over about 40 hours including something like 30,000 feet of elevation. I will have my inReach from Delorme tracking me the whole way and be Tweeting. I have maps and route descriptions and the skills. My biggest fears:
- Animals (bears mostly…)
- Bad Weather
I could obviously elaborate on all of this. Why am I doing this? Isn't this risky? (I'll answer that now, risky compared to Mount Everest or compared to sitting on my couch for three days? Enough said.) Why didn't I advertise this more? Why not go for the whole Nolan's 14, not just 10 of them? Why am I doing this alone? Honestly, maybe I'll answer these later, but it's about a consolation prize for Everest and if I don't go now, when I am still a little acclimated, when will I go?
