Well, Erin and Hig have finished their journey. I won't blurble on this practical part of the forums about how much they've inspired me, and how much of the Right Stuff I think they've showed. I just thought I'd note that towards the end of their journey a bear shredded their shelter, their sleeping mats, and made a hole in one of their boats.
Instead of bailing out, they and their friend sat down for 24 hours with what must have been a LOT of dental floss and restored everything to working condition. Would they have had the confidence and the skills to do that if they hadn't made so much of their own stuff over the years?!
I'm sure other posters on this forum can supply further stories!
