I was told by many not to go or if I did, then to go in a group. The challenge was to walk 40 miles into the real wilderness. There were bears, moose and cougars among the danger list. As far as doing is concern, I had to walk endless kilometers in streams swamps, and swim across a river which was swollen with glacier melt-water. After 18 hours of my start, I was back to where I had parked my motorcycle. Exhausted and hungry. I had walked 79km with just 5 bars of chocolate in my pockets.
Your ride is right up with the best ones I have seen here

BTW, Samarwickrama more accurately means the one with prowess to battle on, certainly something you have!
