Weird Experience:

I always have hallunications in my Badwaterultra's: seeing space ships--the Devil--vintage cars-- money/cards on trees etc etc,

Challenge:

Without any doubt the Deathvalley 300 (out & back) which I completed in 1994 becoming joint 5th to achieve this challenge-Why do it?-Just had to do it!! This December I was the oldest finisher of the "Trans 333KM Mauritania Africa"
