PTD called this morning at 8:45 to tell me how cold it was. 39 degrees. I said ha we have you beat. 29 here in Bethlehem.
He ate his pop tart w/some grape jelly for breakfast and pushed out. He wanted to get moving so he could stay warm. Guess I don't blame him.
He is still not feeling 100%. Allergies? Cold or maybe Flu? But he keeps pushing.
Ponytail called again at 11:15. He already had done 7 1/4 miles in about 2 1/2hrs. Guess he was moving fast. he must have been jogging.
At 3pm he called(must be a good reception day) to say he hit 600 miles today on top of Brushy Mountain. That is 100 miles in a about 5 days.
He will stay at Wapiti Shelter - another 24 miles today on the trail. Shelter sleeps 8. His friend Ichabod was there tonight w/him.
