I met my team partner and we did a 6 mile, part trail, part bushwhacking hike in Bastrop S.P. this morning (6 am... ugghhh...) Really fast paced... Entry is $130 per person ('cuz we registered late) and we are renting a tandem kayak... then there's gear I need to get, energy food, etc.... sigh....Everyone has their own geocaching style and speed. No matter yours, I hope you can relate to racing through the outdoors....There are videos of past adventure races on youtube.com. The site for this one is http://www.aquaterrarace.com/AT_EXP_DETAILS.htmThe race is from Mansfield Dam to Tom Miller Dam.Expedition CoursePaddling 30 - 35 Miles
