Oh my. Are you doing this? And when are you leaving? -- Rhonda 18:48, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

We appear to be seriously considering it. -Robyn 18:55, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
I am so tempted. -- Rhonda 19:04, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
Wade is out doing an errand. I think no one wants to be the one crazy enough to say, "yeah, we leave at two!" -Robyn 20:03, 27 March 2010 (UTC)
... which is why we left at 3:30. --Wade

Okay, this is seriously outstanding. Best of luck to you, my crazy Internet friends. :-) -- starbird 22:15, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

Starbird, we went by your road today. I thought of you. -Robyn

Hats off to you folk. I feel like such a weenie for not driving two hours to up to Quebec today for an on road hash now... - wmcduff 23:12, 27 March 2010 (UTC)

post-expedition comments[edit]

HOORAY! Congratulations! I knew you were crazy enough to go, but I didn't expect the helicopter ride! I guess this expedition has earned its place in the Hall of Amazingness - Danatar 22:42, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

I totally agree – amazing! Congratulations!--Reinhard 16:23, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

very nice, very nice, even after just a brief look through the report, I have to say I'm jealous and impressed :) --mykaDragonBlue [- i have no sig -] 22:46, 29 March 2010 (UTC)

Wow. What a freaking fantastic story...

Congratulations on the globalhash, the helicopter ride, the dedication and the write-up. I laughed, I cried (inside), I re-read the story twice, I wondered about what could possibly have left footprints that big in the dirt on the trail. Thank you for documenting this little've set a bar for globalhash achievements!

Awesomeness that you actually managed to do a globalhash! Especially in a helicopter! (Now to just get one hash of any kind for myself...) I found what I thought were the tracks of some very large bird-type creature in the snow while hiking over spring break. Then I realized that they were actually funny-looking human handprints, probably from when someone else picked up snow to make a snowball. :P But I'm guessing your tracks were from an actual bird of some type.

Those were velociraptor tracks. Robyn and Wade were luckier than they knew! -- starbird 01:38, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
*gasp* You're probably right! Bookworm656 21:32, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Hats off again to the awesome. I admit, as the creator of the globalhash, as I saw you going for this one I thought, "Please don't die, Vancouverites! I'd feel terribly guilty!" -- Wmcduff 13:24, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

You are really crazy... Hats off and Arrrr! --Default 13:35, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Congrats! I had looked at the page all day wondering if you guys had made it. Even the day after I was still wondering if you made it. I'm glad that you did. --NWoodruff 14:00, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Awesome! I'm glad somebody took advantage of a relatively close GlobalHash. One more thing crossed off your to-do list, eh? :) --Wenslayer 16:00, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Coolest. Hash. Ever. I never get enough of reading your adventures, and this is the best one yet. -Archer27 18:21, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Awesome. 'Nuff said :) Much love to you for the hometown mention :) --Meghan 21:18, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

This is so cool!! Congratulations! Sara 13:48, 31 March 2010 (UTC)

Amazing, you two are crazy. Koepfel talk 11:49, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

OUT. OF. CONTROL. I'm in awe. Michael5000 22:24, 1 April 2010 (UTC)

WOW. I just saw this now. Congratulations! That's incredibly amazing! I'm in awe of your geohashing talents/insanity! Also, it may not be the first expedition with a helicopter, but it's the first where the geohasher was in the helicopter! They just airlifted the doctor to me (unfortunately I never got to ride in it, but on second thought, that's probably a good thing). -Srs0 18:16, 17 May 2010 (UTC)

The Hot Sauce at the Vietnamese Restaurant[edit]

It's called Sriracha (Sir-ee-rah-chah) --Aberro 08:17, 30 March 2010 (UTC)

Yeah, I was wondering about that one. Pho is usually a heavily garlicky (and quite delicious) fish sauce. Just slightly hot. But if it's Vietnamese, it must be Pho. Anyway, do I have to comment, on the epicness of your expedition? I think you've heard it all, seen it all. ;) -- relet 11:22, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
In Vietnamese, Phở is the noodles, not the sauce. It's not usually served with sauce already on it but the Sriracha (hot sauce with the cock on) and sometimes oyster sauce are available on the table. -Robyn 21:09, 30 March 2010 (UTC)
Ah! That clears up my confusion. Now I have to find out what I was confusing it with. -- relet 07:48, 31 March 2010 (UTC)
