Having worked as an academic and scientist for many years, I will assure you, many scientists have still yet to discover bonking.

Boreas Pass is a brute. One of the climbs I hated. But...it's the gateway to the end.

I think I was ahead of you both through there, I remember running from a storm. It was dry, fast, and smooth.

Re: The 2022 Tour Divide watchers thread.

Re-routes are usually emailed as a word doc, and or if short enough, sent as a text by Matt. Usually, they are straightforward enough, and at that point you should have already considered that it may happen. I had all the previous re-route/alternates pre-loaded in my GPS that had historically been u...

It's a "feature" of the TDR I only had to experience for about 2 hours. Eventually I gave up and slept until it dried out.

Re: Substitute for chamois creme

Anyone found a readily available suitable substitute for chamois creme? Sudocrem, Savlon etc. I'd rather buy a small tube of something to carry around on tours than a big pot of the real stuff. Gravy. I haven't used the chamois cream in about 8 years now. Don't feel the need for it. Modern inserts ...

Re: Local Trig Tool

I like that, hours of fun. I do love a trig point, especially those in what are now apparently odd locations, tells you about the history of the place. On The Island there is one in the middle of a woods, one in an industrial estate and one that's got woods on one side and a 6fy high close boarded ...

Re: The 2022 Tour Divide watchers thread.

I think I walked about 50m of snow in 2016. Pretty much a non issue. That being the year that Mikes flag is based off.

It was most definitely a fast year. We had very little rain to deal with after Canada.
