I've been lurking the forum for some time now, and I don't really like posting just to say "hey thats great" not that it's bad in any way. But prefer just to (read) peoples adventures without the clutter and my intentionwas to not have my first post on this forum as a "hey that's great"
But anyhow just have to say you've got balls, ok they were probably all shriveled up and went to hiding during your trip. But that was amaizing and just shows that you don't have to go somewhere exotic to find extreme when you live in Canuckistan... and espectially in winter.
Thanks for sharing your adventure!
