Any Swampers or Swamp-related folks attempting the Tour Divide this year? It was fun to live vicariously through the ones that tried last year.

I'm always eager to hear about this.
My bike is more than a toy; it's my vessel.

Airfare is booked.

I depart for Canada (eh) on August 9th. Wheels rolling the 11th or 12th.

Individual time trial. The mother F'ers right now at the front of the Grand Depart are pushing a 16 day (175 miles per day) pace.

OUCH!
