Gary called today and seemed very happy. The misery of the climb/walk/sleeping on the ground seems to not be so bad now and he is starting to really enjoy the trip. He slept in a shelter last night but tonight will be his first night in the new tent. He said it was 30 degrees last night and I bet that was a little chilly sleeping in a sleeping bag. He is at the 295.6 mile marker and has only 1,890.7 miles to go before he comes home. The elevation at the campsite is 4446 feet. Still up there.
