BIG thankyou


Just wanted to say a BIG thankyou to everyone involved in NABX 2012

Took us 2 years to get to NABX and loved every moment of it. Even getting stuck at the other end of the lake bed for 8 hours! :smilegrin:

The friendships and the memories will last forever

thanks again

it was the day when the guys at the other end of the lake had mental winds but down at the markers we had next to nothing. Found point 1, then went past point 2 but wind went down to about 4mph took us forever to get out of the bushes had to windmill kites to get moving! Ran out of water at 430 got some movement as the sunset then died. Walked the last mile or so

They sent out 3 cars for us but we were at the far edge of the lake as that was our tack line and they missed us.

We could only send two (2) cars at a time, so it took some time to find y'all.

Lesson learned, always take a working cell phone with you on Out n back!

Meanwhile, that adventure story will be told forever!

Great Aoxo~!~
