Yep! I read about this a few weeks ago and saw some great video's off of another forum. Serious planning took place before this trip was successful from hiring air support as spotters to constant scanning and CB radio communicatng with truckers- just crazy but congrats for them doing it in record time!

That's sweet. They are so hard core. I couldn't even fathom the thrill!
