    The Real Endurance Race

    Here it is folks....

    Racers well get dropped in the middle of the Canadian rockies in the spring nude. There you well have to fashion clothing, some form of human transport, hunt for food. Goal the first person to avoid human contact the longest and walk, run, swim, paddle whatever and hit the gulf of Mexico wins....

    Rules

    #1. Think of yourself as a hermit, all racers well be dropped in different locations. You must avoid all people even the other racers

    #2. You can't use anything you didn't kill or make with your own two hands

    #3. No resupply's or drops


    Maybe this is what the *real* hardcore riders want?

    If I can make a GPS outta sticks and berries can I use it even though it relies on satellites which I did not create (or put into orbit) with said sticks and berries?

    Alright then, I'm working on plans for a satellite built outta twigs and such propelled into orbit via bottled flatulence.

    Self supported? I got it covered.

    Actually all bikes would need to be disassembled and then spread out on the ground for inspection by the race director, and then reassembled by the rider only using tools fashioned out of raw materials found in the vicinity.

    Tires would need to be deflated of course, because how dare someone do a self-supported race while riding on air pumped by another!

    (if we can't laugh at ourselves...then who the hell can we laugh at?)

    This would only sound appealing to me if I could take a bite out of the back of a live fish and then toss it a la Bear Grylls.


    I also think a memory wipe of some sort should be implemented. You can't use any of that modern knowledge to help you.
