Totally missed Andrea this morning! I drove to Crag’s Campground this morning just to say hi and let the little ones see Dad for a few. When I arrived, Calvin, Axel and Brenda were still sleeping, and the Mule had already left for Johnson Village. Everyone awoke and I also met Tom, who’s son was hiking Pike’s with Andrew. I apologize that I missed your name. Thanks so much for being there! I am truly amazed at how good Andrew looks! He is smiling, motivated, ready to go! He is also very disappointed that his belly is exactly the same size as it started out! I am also truly amazed by his crew! James who just kept on moving after learning his truck is totaled, has probably been getting far less sleep than Andrew, and hiking to and from dirt/mountain bike placement. He is totally in charge! True dedication. Huge thanks to Homie for the support as well! And CaveDog for supporting from afar!And Will Robnett whom none of us knew but Kim, and I still have yet to meet, but came along for all this foolishness, and has been indispensible! Andrea already knows she is not normal, and a freak of nature! I came home to find her arm splint disassembled and left on the counter. We often joke that she is my stunt double in the mountains.
So Andrew was attempting some other time saver, so went in reverse order, but found too much snow for his plan. Still made amazing time though!
