Dave called tonight to let me know he is spending the night near Brown Fork Gap Shelter. Approx 16 grueling miles today. His feet are sore. Lots of ups and downs. Very clear. Says he got some great pics to send home. Can't wait to see them.
Also, he said that he has ALREADY CHANGED his trail name after finding out that 2 other people hiking the trail this year have the name Trooper. They found "the orginal Trooper" and then another one signing in to the shelters. His name now is one that he was called back up north by Sandy Olney. Pony Tail Dave. That soooo suits him. So, Pony Tail Dave it is. Thanks Sandy!
Bye for now,
