July 24, Tuesday, Mike had a tough climb and even tougher descent this morning but the afternoon was much easier. He went 10 miles but is still staying at Ellis Hostel tonight.

July 25, Wednesday, Mike hopes to go 15 miles to Speck Pond Shelter. He said it will be a tough 3 days. He is with Ben and Face Plant.

July 26, Thursday, It is Mike’s Birthday today and also our son, Nate’s Birthday. Mike hopes to get to Carlo Col Shelter. His phone was shipped via Fed Ex overnighter. It left Holland at 6:00pm and should be there by 4:30 Friday.

July 27, Friday, Mike hopes to cross over into New Hampshire today and stay at Trident Col. Mike’s phone arrived at the Gorham, New Hampshire PO at 2:30 this afternoon, so pray that Mike also arrives. Thank you Fed Ex for prompt delivery. Will let you know when I hear from him next.
