|In 2000, Argonne's 8 member River-to-River Relay team (under the name of 4 does and 4 bucks again took part in this 80 mile run from the Mississipi to the Ohio River. This year, there are no pictures at the Ohio river, only at the finish line in the dark! We were given a late starting time and finished with Boh, chased by farm dogs and bats, coming across the finish line using a flashlight. This year we see the many passes made on the course from the Mississippi to the Ohio. Somehow the team was alternately female and male! Previous pictures are in the old pictures section. .
