- This family made my day. I am about to start the climb up the Cascade Mountain Range to Steven’s Point to 4000 feet elevation in next 72 hrs. In good health and good spirits. Minor ankle issue and sunburnt but charging on.

Lastly, the stakes just went up. I was given a challenge coin from both Mike and Brandon representing the U.S. Navy, and the U.S.M.C. to carry the remaining 3400 Miles to the Atlantic Ocean. Challenge accepted. On to Day 6! 🇺🇸
