Rainer Hertrich, who started a continuous daily ski ambition on 1 November 2003, has just celebrated his 2000th consecutive day. Using every conceivable means of getting up mountains mechanically, he's telemark-skied in North and South America.
This report from Vail Daily:
Quotes: "Hertrich has endured through rain, sleet, severe temperatures, a separated shoulder, four broken ribs and even had to avoid a herd of llamas once in South America."
"Hertrich, as of Wednesday, was at nearly 66 million vertical feet since the streak began. He said that reaching that mark is most important to him."
