    Totally Insane

    Has anyone read this and been as amazed as I was by their philosophy,
    luck and physical fitness?

    Those are some amazing pictures. (Just made one of them my background) I haven't read their text, but I can't imagine their experience was anything short of spectacular.

    Read the text, their descriptions of Tibet, the Gobi and how they found food are amazing, inspirational
    and convince me that I'd never do it. Only the insane would set off into the Gobi desert with one liter of water and no food, its amazing that they survived.

    Their equipment list is scary, its almost non-existant

    Those crazy Crane boys did all sorts of wacky adventure trips in the 1980s-- raised a whole bunch of money for Intermedate Technologies, a top shelf charity.

    A very good read.

    Great reading! Thanks for the link.
