Really not sure how this will shake out, but I get going tomorrow morning around 5:15 am.

Good luck to you!
Security is mostly a superstition. It does not exist in nature, nor do the children of men as a whole experience it. Avoiding danger is no safer in the long run than outright exposure. Life is either a daring adventure, or nothing.

Cave Dog will lie awake at night thinking about you for the next two weeks.

Best of luck and I hope the weather is favorable for your attempts.

Good luck, John! If there is a group that has a shot at taking down his record, you are certainly included in it.

His game plan is very close to Cave Dogs except starting on 8/23 around 5:15am instead of 9/04.

I know Homie has been scouting the routes all summer and is very well prepared. Should be exciting to follow. He is going to have a few thunder clouds to deal with right away, hopefully the weather improves as he progresses.

Best of luck! Looking forward to checking on your progress, and hopefully we see the record fall!
Some people have Gods, I have the Mountains. Regardless, neglect either for too long and you will get lost.
