February 25, 2010
My head is still spinning. My feet are damaged but on the mend. To say the 2010 Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race was a crazy time would understate the experience. But after almost seven straight days of racing — and hundreds of kilometers traveled on bike, foot, and kayak — Team Gear Junkie completed the full course through Tierra del Fuego and managed to grab a 4th place finish. Check out the race updates and photos from our reporter, T.C. Worley, here. And below there are a smattering of photos from Worley capturing some of the action from the week. There will be more updates and extensive gear reviews to come as I wind down and get back into real life here at home. Until then, I have to say a huge “thanks” to my teammates Jason Magness, Chelsey Gribbon and Daniel Staudigel; to T.C. Worley, our crack reporter and photographer onsite in Patagonia; to Dennis Piretra at Wenger (who convinced me to sign up for this crazy event in the first place!); to the Gear Junkie readers who cheered us along the way; my wife and family for taking care of things (like our three kids!) back home; and to the passionate, hard-working, and tireless staff and volunteers in Chile who made the Wenger Patagonian Expedition Race possible! —Stephen Regenold
