[Cdt-l] Sunset?

I have been following Sunset's nobo CDT hike, but his last post was June 6 just before heading into the snow in South San Juan wilderness. 

He is from my neck of the woods in SC. This is his second CDT hike, and he has completed the AT and PCT twice.

I'm just wondering whether anyone on the list has heard from him.
