    Do they have chilli dogs?

    On the way down you could get a dog cooked in Chile.

    Yes, at the bottom of 500' deep crevasses.
  • Shawn C.Shawn C. Senior Member Posts: 6,809 Senior Member
    And no, you can't bunny hop the crevasses, so don't even go there!

    What, are you crazy. Of course they can they have mad skills* They will show you on their gopros.


    *Dude, why are you trying to discourage this.

    Good point.

    Hex, I partially retract my statement. Yes, the chili dogs lie at the bottom of a treacherous crevasse, but they are reputed to be the finest chili dogs know to man! The filet mignon of lips and ****! Even the organizers of National Scrapple Day are wrought with jealousy!

    Ahem. "the group will be flown by small aircraft to the 89th parallel to begin this incredible challenge. Riding up to 20 km over the next 9 days, they will then make their way to the South Pole."

    I'm sorry. They are flying to (less than 180 km of) the South Pole. That's not exactly Amundsen Expedition quality.
    Its more like me hiking to the top of 14er Mt. Evans here in Colorado, from the Parking Lot below the summit.
    And they better take their poop home with them.

    Thanks, Creekguy. This just confirms my hypothesis that all fat bike owners are ****.

    pretty much everything down there is chilly.

    There is no way to refute this.

    This will be the fat bike equivalent of the voyage of the Endurance and Hex is the Sir Ernest Shackleton of fat bikes.

    Guys,

    I went south today and rode on the beach.

    How many chili dogs did you eat before, during and after the ride?

    When I was in Italy recently I saw fat bikes used as city bikes. Does that make sense to you?

    What makes sense to me is that Joe made sure pink coat was in ever single picture.

    Me thinks we found a new Captain...he certainly just proved how clever he is.

    Fat bikes with slick tires are becoming more common

    It would if some of the towns still had cobblestone streets.

    They all had some cobblestone or somewhat larger stone paving blocks in places.

    Whenever I'm in Wisconsin, first thing I think.."I really need to get me one of them Chicken Malibu Sandwiches."

    I had a burger the day before. Had to change it up a little.
