Extremely expensive and dangerous vanity project. The things people do for what is only a hobby!

We test our Strengths through Challenges,
which teaches us to tolerate the Trbulations
of Life. The Last Man in the Olympic Footrace?
Why, He is an Olympian, Sir!

I've also come to think of these Dxpeditions as
Car Races: It demonstrates the Robustness of
the radio gear, Antennas, and Power Systems:
A Spec Sheet on say a new LiPo Battery tested in
an environmental test chamber? Doesn't hold
a candle to an actual real life test.

My Hat is off to those who Dare to Excel.

73 and All the Best!
