Hey Ron, Harry and Buddha!

The next Ukatak raid is from February 10 to the 18 from Ottawa to Mont-Tremblant, a distance of over 400 km. We can make an international team if you can fork the inscription fee of 1900 euros.

Ron, we could get sponsored by The North Face, that could be pretty cool!  8)

I've got a place in Mont-Tremblant so we can crash after the raid, but you would have to be civilized, my wife will be there. ;D

Cool! But I am not sure if I will be out of dept by then, but yesterday the BBC showed The Challenge in which an amateur girl from the UK was added to a pro team only 2 months before. She trained non-stop and they actually won teh race (being only 1 of 2 teams that finished at all within the limits). Looked really tough but great to do.

Do you do this as well MikeW or are you only offering lodging?
Do we know any unbreakable chicks who want tto join? You must have one woman in the team (minimally)  8)

That Challenge show was on Everest last week, same concept, only the guy they picked did not even get to North Col, even after 3 tries. First time a show actually showed that Everest is quite tough..
But hey, at least he tried 3 times  :()

Hi Harry!

I can ride a mountain bike in the snow, I can snowshoe (quite good actually  ;)). I can definitely ski (my favorite sport...with mountaineering of course!  ;D).

Seriously, I would love to do a race like this. The only problem is to find crazy guys to do it with you. That's where you all come along.

When you live in Québec, temperatures of -30c to -40c is no big deal, you just need the right equipment.

As for knowing a chick who would want to do a race like this!  :lol) :lol) :lol)

I went to the summit of Mt Washington (New Hampshire USA) with my wife and she swore me never to bring her on other mountains.  :P

I'd love it! but between Aconcagua in December and Denali in June and then going to Canada for a race I'd definately be fired from my job....I'm skating on thin ice as it is  :eek)
