Latest report from Lindsay...

Lindsay's wife just passed on to us the latest from her husband, as follows. What are we talking about? Click on the Events link in the left hand column of this page to see other recent updates about Lindsay and his exploits.

He called at 11:00 pm. Much to his surprise, he figured out how make the sat. phone work. I don't think we can say this is a mastered skill right now, but let's hope he can do it at least once more.

Although you could hear the fatigue in his voice, the excitement was there too. Right now he is with a group of 5 others resting and refueling at the cabin at Rainy Pass Lodge. They had been there since about 3:00 in the afternoon. I took it as a good sign that they were being sensible about getting some sleep and food. The cabin is about at the half way point of the journey distance wise, but not effort wise. They were readying themselves to climb Rainy Pass. Their plan was to head out in a short while for the stretch to the tent at Rohn. Once again he stated it was like nothing that anyone could ever have expected; lots of pushing the bike through the snow and minimal riding. One of their group who had ridden the event before assured them they would eventually come to a stretch where they could ride! Hope springs eternal.

Other bits of significant information:

- they really appreciated eating the food the people who had withdrawn had left in their drops bags (apparently that's understood)

- they are hoping the dogs don't catch up......

- he's pretty sure he won't make his flight connections home

- the group he is with are all really nice guys
