Things are coming together finally! It has been hard to take it slow in the beginning, as this is our first semester in action, but we are confident it will pay off in the end. We can feel the anticipation in the air for the first design project.
Earlier this month, three members of the GEAR team participated in the annual Great Northern Adventure Race (GNAR) hosted by the Outdoor Adventure Program here at Michigan Tech. Megan, Dean and Ryan participated in a 3-man team completing a biking, canoeing, trail running, road running, land navigation and canoeing race totaling about 26 miles in a 5-6 hour race. The team had a great time participating and couldn't have enjoyed a better day in the keweenaw. Race coordinator Carly Joseph, and GEAR Vice President, had quite a different day coordinating the day-long race....but loved to see her hard planning set in place for the race participants. See the images below of the GEARHEADS running the GNAR race.
See you on the Trails,
