Berryman is almost here…and fun with hyperlinks

This needs to be on a belt buckle

Every year, hordes of AR badasses, (and people like us), flock to Southern Missouri for what has become the Midwest’s AR Superbowl: The Berryman Adventure Race. With names like Bushwacker, Alpine Shop and WEDALI, the list of registered teams is basically a list of “Who’s Who in AR.”   Speaking of team names, I’d have to say “Victorious Secret” is my current favorite. And I probably shouldn’t mention this, but it looks like “Awesome-Butt Girl” is racing this year.  Be excited, guys.

Bonk Hard Racing is a name synonymous with greatness, and everybody knows Berryman is the real deal.  Whether you win, lose or finish 2 hours and 45 minutes after the final time cutoff, you’re gonna go home with a sweet jacket and one hell of a campfire story. You’ll get your money’s worth, there’s no doubt about it.

And if your race doesn’t go as well as you’d planned, you can take comfort in knowing  there are coolers full of hot baked potatoes and cold beer waiting at the finish line.  Bonk Hard brings plenty of butter and sour cream, too. And seriously, what’s better than cold beer and hot potatoes after walking 13 miles in a pouring rain-storm?

Brooke and Ben. Trust me, they’re happier than they look.

Sadly, I don’t see the Snail Trail,  Hoosier Daddies or WTFAR listed anywhere, which is particularly disappointing since Todd won’t get to meet The Madness. Oh, what could have been..

Travis Hammons and I will be seeking redemption for our colossal failure at last year’s Berryman, and KG will be racing with her brother Jim as Team Hangover. I’m not sure of everyone else’s plans, but I’m fairly certain Adam has other plans.

So who else is going but hasn’t signed up yet?

  1. aw, im blushing you guys!!! seriously, the drew + luke + raft moment is one of my AR lifetime highlights and i wasn’t even racing!!!

  2. For the record, we were 45 min past the official cut-off, which was 14 hours. Still 2 hours and 45 min longer than 12 hours, but the champagne shower washed away any lingering regrets about that.

  3. What about Luke falling asleep on his bike and hallucinating when he saw floating samurai heads (like in Scooby Doo)?
