Podcast: Episode 123: Rob Krar and Mike Foote - the Fastest Known Skinny Dip?


Rob and Mike not only did a great route in fine style, but their photo went big in the FKT world.  (It should be on the cover of Outside Magazine!)

R2R2R.alt runs across the Grand Canyon, with the same distance and elevation profile as the very popular (overpopulated?) Rim to River to Rim to River to Rim route.  Big difference:  there is no bridge across the river - have to swim!  

"When Mike texted saying he wanted to do this route, I said, 'No way.'" - Rob

"Rob and I have a long history of doing long and stupid things together." - Mike

"I think we should publish an annual Fastest Known Time calendar!" - Hillary

Join co-host Hillary Allen in hearing more memorable thoughts from Mr. and Mr. December!
