So I guess for me to make this clear so there are no miss understandings. I had NO idea that Joe Decker did the Grand Slam and Badwater in the same year. I was not trying to take this away from him and yes it looks as if he was the first to do it, we just did it differently. He did the Old Dominion/Badwater Grand Slam and I did the Vermont/Badwater Grand Slam. Regardless, I think they are both incredible accomplishments!:)
It looks like he was the first male and I was the first female.
