Hi all,

I just dropped off Skittles and Recess at Brainard Lake (~ 50 minutes from Boulder) this morning. They plan on heading over Pawnee Pass on the Continental Divide and hooking up to the CDT by Monarch Lake.  They plan on doing some kind of flip-flop thing (technical term, dontchyaknow).

They were supposed to be in town by Weds or Thurs. But plans changed (otherwise I'd put out a hiker trash APB!)

Recess had possible giardia  and  was  recuperating in Steamboat. Long Story short, I picked them up, we drove back to Boulder via Trail Ridge Road in Rocky Mtn NP and they stayed at my humble abode for a few days (Boulder, CO..a new trail town. :D) and did all the usual hiker chores. I think Boulder may have a few gear stores....

Recess is feeling much better and they are both having a good time.

It was so great to see a good friend from the CDT on his second CDT journey!
