Bax called around noon to say hi and to report that yesterday he covered 34 miles in a day and had started hiking this morning at 6:00 am. He's hiking with a guy named Ryan who is apparently inspiring him to great achievements whether he wants to or not. ;-}
He was also taking a break to "modify" one of shoes with his Swiss Army knife. He's been having foot problems all along and being a size 14-leaning-toward-15 makes getting help in most of the little towns tricky at best. I hope the surgery worked.
He's well on his way to "Hiker Heaven" in Agua Dolce. It's a spot run by a couple called the Saufleys who open their home to every thru-hiker on the trail. Everyone speaks fondly of it and I met Donna Saufley back in Lake Morena - she was lovely and I'm glad he's within striking distance.
I have more trail notes to type up, and Bax has all three camera cards with him, so hopefully there will be more pictures coming soon.
