This weekend we went to Mount Carroll in Illinois on an adventure camp. I drove the most of the way so Michael could work in the car. It took me seven hours to get there. Sunday it took Michael less than six hours to drive us back to Minneapolis...
Friday evening and all Saturday we had clinics on climbing, canoeing, mountain biking, and navigation and Sunday there was a eight hour adventure race. Michael raced with two men and I participated with a couple we met on the camp.
|My team: Mike, Roxane, and I, crossing a river, seven hours into the the race |
(Michael finished an hour before this, so he had plenty of time to take pictures of us)
|Me, posing, after I noticed that Michael had found us.|
|Passing the river in order to enter a cave in find a check point|
|Do we really want to go in there?|
|We made it out alive...|
|On our way, on a bed of anemones|
|On our way to the third last check point, a zipline...|
Are we sure it's up that huge hill?
|Me, getting ready to jump|
|Me, getting ready to do an ascend.|
|Each team had one robe|
|Roxane is helping me getting over the first part.|
|Almost there (notice, none of the others have moved :-D)|
|Me rappelling down on the other side of the rock, |
while Roxane is ascending it
|Me, still on the top, trying to pluck up courage to begin the rappel, |
Roxane almost down with her ascend..
|Me, rappelling and swearing (...)|
|Done after 8 hours and 5 minutes|

Geografisk område: Loring Kitchen & Bar, 1359 Willow Street, Minneapolis
Yesterday we slept in and went mountain biking around noon. The weather was nice, the temperature was above 20 and we were ready for some of the many single tracks in the area - however they were not ready for us…We went to three; all of them were closed... So we ended up going on a less exciting drive on a dirt road.
In the afternoon we went cycling around the city. It was Saint Patrick’s day and Downtown was crowded with people wearing green and partying. All cafés with tables outside were filled, it was amazing, the atmosphere was great.
|Me on the Stone Arch Bridge|
The cocktail turned into some sushi, a bottle of wine (served in plastic cups), more cocktails, a beer, and a Sunday morning headache...

Termometeret viste 21°C - som i ENOGTYVE GRADER CELSIUS !!!!!
|Mig der har taget yder-jakken af |
og cykler hjem i en tynd (termo)jakke og
stadig har det alt for varmt...
|Mig der forsøger at tage et billede af temperaturen|
|Mig der har spildt 10 minutter af mit liv på|
at prøve at tage et billed af temperatur målingen
(min telefon tror vist heller ikke på det)
