Wind River TMF expedition 2010
Friday October 1, 2010 4:22pm
TMF = Too Much Fun - also known as a sufferfest. This involved hiking, climbing, mountaineering, acroyoga, technical hiking, packrafting, and hitchhiking - an unlikely but hard to beat combination.

lots of pics in the posted links, but here are a few teasers...

Nice shot of Helen. We did that prominent couloir in a whiteout after going nuts from being tentbound in a multi-day storm.

You need to work a bit on your Usain Bolt pose. Off to read the TR.

I'm going more for an Arnold pose than Usain.

Thanks MrT!!

I know clicking links is stupidly easy, but I still think TR's might get a bit more attention if you sucked a few of your most killer photos directly into this TR. You know, as a way to motivate the lazy ones to click those links. Am I wrong? Give it a try.

I've been climbing 36 years now and still never made it into that place.
Something else to "bump" on the bucket list!

You guys did a great job, no small endeavor to tag the summit of Gannet from any direction, let alone snag 2 sweet Winds summits on one trip. Hope you brought bug repellant with you!

this is way cool. Great trip, great stories, excellent photos (the arty shots at the end of part III are really nice), amazing whatever you call the live human sculture tricks at the summit and the little inflatable stuff at the end is also really interesting!

Thanks, ah no, that's tnks or thks or something.
