Enduro Alaska goes Outside

Greetings gang,

School is cancelled today and all of my crayons are getting dull, so I've decided to post the latest Enduro Alaska video:


Thanks for watching, despite your best interests.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Thanks for sharing. A lot of fun to watch! Wow!

I felt pain just watching. Wearing a Michelin Man suit might be the way to go.

Great video!
Looked something like a cross between Team Pterodactyl on the Denali and the D2D field events.













without the carnage.

Fortunately, at this stage of our lives, Maturity has provided an ample supply of additional, natural padding. We arrived at the end of it with relatively little bruising, except to our self-image, mental health, tender psyches and over inflated egos.

Otherwise, we were just fine. Really.

Regards,

Mr. BigWheel

Not sure if that was fun to watch or not but it sure was interesting. Admire your tenacity and pain threshold.. Thanks for sharing.

joints4sale,

Please quote away with abandon. I probably stole that line from a Robert Frost poem, or maybe Hemingway. But it might also be attributed to the Bard himself, so I don't think there will be any royalty issues involved.

Just don't tell anyone that you quoted someone who rides a three-wheeler with two wheels or your social standing will plummet precipitously.

Regards,

Mr. BIgWheel

My husband just changed his tag line to quote you from the video.

I NEVER want to do that event...and have to admire that you guys DID.

Way to go!

Oh...and you guys are experienced, NOT "old."

Thanks for the encouragement. Realistically, we would only be considered "experienced" by Jimmy Hendrix' standards. If we were furniture we'd be "distressed" or perhaps even "antiqued." A used car? Obviously, previously-owned. As real property, we'd be "derelict" or perhaps even "abandoned."

However, on youtube, we're considered masters of the Truly Pointless How To Video. Therefore, here is the latest from Enduro Alaska:
