Hi guys, we are about to head up on the train! Thanks for all of the encouragement! Basically the plan is to just survive the first 4 days on similar schedule as last year. I've moved the elks up a couple of days to try to get them when I am a little fresher, and then if we somehow make it out of the elks in one piece, then just try to hang on til the end! looks like some big clouds building for the afternoon so I will sure be happy when I'm off the wilsons tomorrow!

Damn, good luck Andrew.

Best of luck and I hope the weather and snow melt (speeds up) cooperate for you.

Also, I guess I should revive my old Excel spread sheet. For those Type A numbers geeks out there here are Andrew's splits from 2014 as recorded per the Delorme..
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

And here is the new sheet where I will try and track Andrew's 2015 attempt, with the caveat that I'll be traveling July 1st-5th so in limited interwebs range so if anyone else out there is excel savvy and wants to either update the sheet or improve it, PM me and I can give you access to the Google Doc.
https://docs.google.com/spreadsheets/d/ ... edit#gid=0" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false;

Edit: Oops, sorry, the new sheet was set to private, its been fixed and is now public as of 10pm 6/28/15.

Good luck, Andrew! Very exciting. Unfortunately I will be in the Weminuche 7/1-7/5 so I will miss out on most of the excitement, but looking forward to following the last couple days when we return.
