    After hitching a ride on Space X Falcon 9, we will meet at Valles Marineris Grand Canyon Trailhead with lots of parking. Distance 2,500 miles, Elevation Gain 33,000 ft, Gravity 1/3 of Earth.

    Valles Marineris stretches east-west just below the Martian equator. It starts in the west in the Noctis Labyrinthus, a system of maze-like valleys and canyons, and stretches around 20 percent of the planet to the chaotic terrain near the Chryse Planitia basin.

    Bring 3L of water since Mars is experiencing a 4 million year drought. Extra cans of air. Carry 5lbs with marshmallows and graham crackers. Pack it, leave it. Every lb matters on rocketship back.

    @TommyTornado --ah, shucks, I thought we were going to be teleported to Mars via the new BMW teleporter aka "beamer beamer" I think SpaceX will take too long & my doggies need to be walked...or can I take them with me?

    February 15

    • Tommy T.

      I don't trust teleporters due to them scrambling us into eggs. The Falcon 9 rocket will leaveEarth's atmosphere, in space we will open a worm hole into Mars low orbit. Should only take 2 hours roundtrip for our Martian dayhike.
