We received a box from Ryan yesterday with some additional weight reduction effort and a picture SD card. Based on his last GPS location it looks like they are just east of Buena Vista, VA. This would put him right at 800 miles.
The pictures of the bear are the darker haired animal. The one with the hat is Ryan. I understand the tradition of not shaving on the trail but his beard is growing 3x his hair. He will be tripping over it by Maine. I may offer some incentive to see him shave but I'd don't think I'd get anywhere with it.
