We all have moments of pain and doubt, but what happens when they are self-inflicted adventures that cause them? And what does it say when its fun?

Sufferthon on the Dirtbag Diaries

Hi All,

We’ve had the great honor of being featured on the Dirtbag Diaries, for an episode titled….The Suffe6a00d8341d07fd53ef017d3f0be04c970c-300wirthon!  We are very excited to be a part of the Diaries and are avid listeners. Be sure to check out their other great stories at http://www.dirtbagdiaries.com/.

As always we know that we couldn’t have done this alone, special thanks to Kevin Hopper, Aaron Hartz, Becca Cahall, Stormy Given and Anya Crea Vance.

Keep on suffering and stay tuned for the next epic.

McKenzie Pass(out)

Hey All,

Thanks for sticking with us over the summer, your loyalty is about to be rewarded!  Josh just left on his family mega road trip (a sufferthon of its own with two young kids) but before he left we found the time to plan the next in the suffer seriers.

We’re calling it the “McKenzie Pass(out)”. We start at the top of the McKenzie pass on Hwy 242, we’ll then trail run to the top of Belnap Crater and back ~12 miles.  We then hop on my vintage Schwin Twin Tandem (outfitted with a supplemental break system) and ride down 242 20 miles to the junction with Hwy 126 where we’ll ditch the tandem and jump in to kayaks on the McKenzie River.  ~60 miles later we’ll exit the boats in Springfield and start the final leg on the Tandem to  a fine food and drink establishment for refreshments.

Mark your calendars, September 13th it’s on. Check out a map of the route below.

As always make sure to check back later to see updates and a post suffer video.



Twin Peak Summer Suffer

Hey All,

Josh and I were talking the other day about sufferthon potential in the coming months.  We had previously determined that the Hood to Coast sufferthon was impractical given current conditions.  It turns out that when planning a potential suffer fest you have many variables to consider, because of this we are tabling the Mt. Hood event until snow, water, and free time variables align like Jupiter and Mars in the age of aquarius.  To tide us over until then we present the Twin Peak Suffer.

The plan is to ski mountaineer Mt. Bailey, ride/hike to the western shore of Diamond Lake.  Swim the 2 miles to the east shore, then trail run/scramble Mt. Thielsen.  24hrs total, June 13th and 14th!
