World Run II / Reports
The map shows the position of which the pictures for the day are taken (if any). The start and finish markers are placed at the first and last valid registered position. This is not nessesary the actual start and finish position, if GSM or GPS signals was not available.
Distance today: 30.0 km (Accumulated: 21781.0 km)
Elapsed time: 03:04:23
Start 12:45, 13c, v. strong wind, allm. overcast. At bl.&white km-marker "KM 2670" on hwy. 3 to Bournes Aires, 4km past the Chile - Argentina borderpost, in Argentina.
Finish 17:08pm, 16c, med. wind and same. At bl.&white km-marker "KM 2640" on hwy. 3 to Bournes Aires.
After the succesfull stage yesterday, crossing the border into Argentina, we set our tents near a volcanic crater - Laguna Azul (blue crater lake inside the inactive volcano cone) - approximately 5km off the main road.
The view of sunset was spectacular as it went down behind the half-dome of the crater. Meanwhile a storm was drawing in; rushing clouds across the low & wide horizon !
Pitching the tents in the storm was a struggle, tying them to thecar via the sideropes - a must to keep them from taking off and tumble into the black stones of lavafields left by an old lavastream through the open yellow-grass landscape.
Jamie was a very loyal help, making sure I got my tent properly secured before setting his own. And so far he has done a superb job of balancing both beeing supportdriver & prof. cameraman, as well as showing a talent for repairing most things w. a piece of wire & our toolbox :-)
All this however, doesnt mean that I wont get tired - as today where the legs felt like lead as the body struggles to adapt dur. the first weeks, as usual in these runs. Hopefully it should be up to full strength & more kms in a few weeks after we tomorrow pass through Rio Gallagos city.
The exact route can be seen each step of the way via the gps-documentation system which transmits live as I run. In case of lack of transmission signal it will be uploaded automaticly when I reach carrier signal again.
When you click at the "live coverage" you need to further click on "jesper kenn olsen" in order to see the stages which has been completed if I am finished with the days running, since I am thus not transmitting live before the next day. The time you see at the live-coverage is the total time spend on that particular stage from the run starts to the finsh point (including time spend on reststops for food, water, navigation, local authorities, road safety etc.) where as the time at the top of this report is the "stopwatch time" which is excl. all stops.
The pictures from the stages will usually be uploaded in the evening but can be delayed depending on wether I have data-signal to transmit them. They will be displayed under each daily report when you click on "Reports" in the main meny and select the contry or continent I am currently running on. They are coded with the gps-location at which they are taken and their position will be displayed on the little map next to the report.
At present this feature (made by my excellent webmaster and brother-in-law Kasper Vibe-Leonhardt) is the easiest accessible way of seeing the daily gps-track of the run - but eventually we hope that this function will also be avaliable via the "live coverage" by endomondo.
