I´m deeply impressed.
I promise stop complaining about my 375 miles to the Alps.
It reminds me of what I heard back in the 80´s.
The Russian racers were training in the Far East (Kamchatka near Japan) and in Siberia. When the season was about to start they took their "Westward Ho" ride to the Alps.
On the Russia/Poland border, maybe still the distance Uncle Louie has to cover, they were happy and relaxed "to be almost there".
And then Zhirow beat Stenmark three times in a row at the end of the season.
(And then he killed himself in a car. Zhirow, that is.)
Uncle, you will be the hero in our January (Czech) SNOW magazine. Your feat MUST be published and made known in Europe!
Would you have a foto (300 kB+, not necessarily)?
