Am I being an elitist adventure snob, or is this year's crop of Outside Adventure Grant finalists a little weak? 4 out of 5 of these won't take longer than a month. The run across Africa seems the toughest, but it bugs me that they hype the vertical climbing as "two and a quarter times that of Everest." Over the course of 3,000+ miles? You know that means your route is essentially flat, right? But I guess they're trying to raise money for a good cause, so I'll stop hating on them.
