Here is a list of all of the TGO Challenge-related posts, which will be added to as I finish retelling our crossing is now complete!  If you want to skip straight to the action, start with Day 1, where our challenge began with a combination of beautiful scenery, illness, muscle pulls, a route change (already) and re-guying our tent in the wee hours of the morning in high winds…. and yes, that was only Day 1!
