Have you ever reached a point in an adventure (race or not) where getting dirtier/wetter didn't matter any more? Did that feel like despair or freedom?

Not specifically in adventure racing. But in general, my rule of thumb for how good a time I've had is how big a ring I leave in the tub.

Have you ever mountain biked on a trail at night?

Yes. I've done several endurance mountain bike races, including the old 24 Hours of Snowshoe (on a team).

Have you learned how to use a compass and map to navigate?

Yes.

Have you participated in an adventure race before? What is interesting to you about AR?

One. The variety, the uncertainty.

What's your strongest AR discipline - biking, paddling, trekking, ropes, navigation? Your weakest?

"Strongest" suggests a degree of strength to me. I'm more a jack of all trades.

Introduction

I write about outdoor adventure and am writing a book about the same in the Southeast. One section will be on adventure racing. I'm hoping to get insight into the sport through the group, as well as do a race or two.
