PTD says he did about 20.5 miles today, up and over Mt Love (6,446') and Clingman's Dome (6,643'). The tourist road to the Dome was closed due a landslide. Yeah! No tourists. He had the mountain to himself. Great feeling to be king he says but no one to take my picture w/the beautiful views behind him.
Says the snow was not knee deep like others had encountered a few weeks before. Now it is only ankle deep and getting sparse.
Dave is spending the night at Mt Collins Shelter. He says he stayed the night again with Mr Vix(from the UK) and 2 Rings(Ian) and Landfill, the others have moved ahead or are behind a bit.
He has reached the 200 mile mark. SUPER JOB PONYTAIL DAVE!
