Bax report

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.

P.S. You can read about Bax's adventures getting back to the trail from BayCon here.
