    Karl's site had him hopefully hiking about 18 miles today with his wife. I assume he's trying his leg out to see how it feels to determine if he can continue the A.T. as a hike, but not as a run. It looks like he has called it a day at 1:10 p. m. at a road just south of Stratton Mountain and he got the 18 miles he was hoping for. The $64 question is how is he going to do tomorrow. That will tell us a lot about whether his leg has recovered or not. I still wouldn't expect to see any huge days for some time, if at all. I wish him luck.

    This is very interesting to see another record attempt. Very different than how Karl is doing it.

    Impressive, just 11 days off the male record with no hype or fanfare.

    Just west of where Karl is for tonight is an east-west road called Mt Washington Road. On some maps one of the mountains to the SW of there is called Mount Washington. The views from the trail as it heads south has to be awesome. The eastern side of the ridge almost drops straight off.

    That's a gorgeous area! Yes, there is a Mt. Washington just to the SW of Sheffield. I spent 5years on the top of that Mt. at a YMCA camp. The hike up there is an awesome ridge walk!

    Could be in around 4am Monday morning.

    Just think, slightly better planning and drier feet and he would have made it. I'm impressed he pulled it off after the disaster in Vermont, and only a few days short...or long.
