I got a call again today from Gary and he sounded great. He seems to have gotten used to the walk and semi-enjoying it. He stayed in the hotel the other evening and they had a cook out for the hikers and spent the evening sitting around the campfire. He really seemed to have enjoyed that.
He has met up with two other hikers that are walking with him, one from England, and the other from San Francisco. They are both 62 years old. I am glad they have each other to watch out for. He said they are walking from 12-15 miles a day.
