Michael called tonight. They are in Hiawassee, Georgia. They have
hiked 68.4 miles on the AT and they are one day ahead of their pacing
schedule. They are going to rest in a hotel room tonight and take a
half day off tomorrow. He thinks they are making good time but feels
they can do even better farther down the trail. They have had good
weather. No rain. He said they are having fun.
