Overslept a bit, I guess that figures at this point. A few K up and over a mountain pass, then stumble down a massive peat bog ramp. Nature is so bitchin!

Surprise! Cutoff was extended. Spent most of the day on the verge of hypothermia. Packraft missions 100% success. Paul's still pissing out the wrong end.

Talked ourselves out of a 2hr cold paddle, and into a 6hr (more?) cold bushwhack. What we're we thinking?

35 minute bike to trek TA down. We're glacier bound. Paul's looking much better. We are feeling fast and fabulous in our matching 2XU thermal tights!

An inauspicious start ahead- Paul's puking up bile and pooping his brains out. Bad food? Nerves? Doesn't matter... Gotta go as fast as we can.

Took a bus to the start line- now to do final prep, a last meal, and then a midnight start...
