USA a Close Fourth in Oberhof Relay

Just 0.007 of a second separates USA Luge from the team relay podium in Oberhof, In 4 races this weekend, Germans set 3 track records


OBERHOF, Germany – Last spring when the World Cup schedule was released, Germany got what it wanted – one of the final three races of the season in Oberhof. The last three events determine seeding for the 2018 Winter Olympics, and Germany’s domination here even exceeds what it does elsewhere.

Thermerino’s Maiden Voyage

I had a plan to hike Mt Willey on 01/09/2017. I wanted to hit the Tom/Field/Willey loop to bag all three 4000’ers but my hiking partner cancelled and I didn’t want to make that road trek back to the vehicle or be stuck hitching.

I had been waiting to get my grubby little hands on the new Minus33 Thermerino Jacket and finally pulled the trigger on it.  This was to be its maiden voyage.  I’ll admit, I was apprehensive of taken an unknown/unproven (to me) product into Crawford Notch when it was -10* out.  I own a heavier down jacket that I had been taking into the woods with me but was too excited for this jacket to leave it behind.  I opted to throw an extra, “heavy” top in my pack just in case.
