  • Applications being taken to help me with setting a new unsupported 46r record.

    I will be riding a sedan chair for this record.

    I will be needing 3 sets of 8 bearers and a cooking crew of 2 and I guess 20 bearers for the food.

    I need someone to design and formulate a carbon fiber sedan chair too.

    I'm allergic to carbon fiber so I can't help. If you switch to rattan or cane contact me. Good luck

        I can be one of the bearers. I will require a sherpa, a barber and, of course, a minstrel.

        I can only assume you will finish on Porter. Seems apropos.

        How did you choose to go the unsupported route?
        I might be kidding...

          I came up with this idea reading about the various 46r records being broken and thought to myself 'I would need one of those chairs that they carry people in to set a record like that'.

          I had to google it to find that it is called a sedan chair.

          I like the idea of unsupported because ... it reminds me of one of those 1950's African safari movies with the porters and high adventure.

          It is also reminds me of Monty Python with the Knights and the extra guys with coconuts.

          I also like the idea of meeting the press afterward and talking about how hard I worked to pull it off.

          I would of course be the CEO "Adirondack Sedan Chair Adventures" and how as the CEO this is my record belonging to me alone. Said with my best Gollum impersonation.

          I am very sorry that no one pointed out that having this many people in a hiking group was against the DEC rules.

            Or, what about noticing that your number of helpers would be 46, and with you makes MacNaughton?
