Traveling today to to Geneva, then Chamonix where i will begin the Haute Route through the Alps of France and Switzerland.
The 500 year old classic takes 12 days running 112 miles from the Chamonix valley and Mont Blanc to Zermatt and the Matterhorn. Thanks to the good folks at Patagonia (Andrew), Gregory Packs (Shane), and High Gear watches (Gene), we will be styling with some great gear (thanks guys!). The photo opportunities I think will be pretty nice. With the arrival of a new camera any second we'll be light and ready for the journey, and ready to shoot some high def video too.
Wish us luck, after a summer at sea level kiting and surfing my lungs are feeling alittle lazy. Will be good to see some elevation and get the wind sucked out of me. No pain no gain!
