Thanks. I thought so too. Here's one more. These are the 2 people that made it up the Mt. first in record time and I think they started last even 1/2 hour behind some people. Ryan Atkins and I'm having a brain fart on the other person (Tony maybe?).

Yes, Ryan Atkins and Tony Melton. And it was more than half an hour, but I don't know how much more. There I was, walking uphill as fast as I could without having a heart attack, pushing my unicycle, trying to catch up with the group of guys in front of me. And then I hear some talking. Here come Ryan and Tony riding up the (dirt) road behind me, having a conversation and rolling along like they're on flat ground. Right past me and gone within a minute! Grrr.

Sorry, my pictures are still locked up on my portable hard drive until I can make space on my network for them and start getting them organized. One is a picture of Ryan and Tony after they passed me, riding in front of open sky. Hey, did I take that one of you and Andy? Sweet. I'm glad it shows the height and vertigo-angle of that spot the way we saw it! Definitely the steepest terrain I've ever been on. Our ride went all the way down to that flat area down there.

That's a good one, but I don't think there are many things that can compare to mountains.

I wanna go to UNICON....

Yep, that's indeed Tony and Ryan.

Dang- wished I'd come along for the ride. Sounded pretty epic!

I was wondering where all your pictures were. I know you gots to have some "best ones" to post here when you can. And yes Ryan and Tony must have flew up the hill (are you sure they didn't hitch hike or take a train? ) cause the next group (I think the french group of guys) that made it up was at least 1/2 hour behind them if not an hour. Then they get to the top and decided to hike up like an hour to touch snow!! Crazy I tell ya.

Yes, I think it was you that took that picture. I just wish Andy and the other guy were looking at the camera (I know how hard it was to not look at the view so I can understand). The picture would be that much better though. I cropped them out of the picture and it looks OK without them in it but since I had to zoom in, it's not the best quality. That was by far the best view we had coming down.

Since I'm posting, here's one more for you guys. You can see the "Top of Europe" towards the middle top of the picture if you look closely!!

If I did a 'race' like that, I'd be last, because I'd be stopping to take so many pictures...

No UNICON next year, just Fluck (well, 'just' Fluck). Next UNICON in two years, probably in Denmark. Hope to see all of you there!

Why don't you post the link to all the pictures so we can see them all at once.


Or do you have them in the gallery?
