After driving all night to drop off the Volkswagen to Andrew’s Mom Brenda in Durango, they spent this morning doing some last minute prepping!  James and Andrew are waiting to catch the train from Silverton to Needleton for the hike to Chicago Basin.  It looks like he plans to start between 4 and 4:30am tomorrow (Wednesday, June 18th) morning, depending on how optimistic he feels, 3000ft below Windom.  He must make it back to the train by 11:15am to catch the train back from Needleton to Silverton.  It looks like the weather may throw some light rain/snow/gusty winds at him.
