Hello form the Southern PCT

Recently dropped into the 60's daytime here in Warner Springs.  Hoping for a 
break from this cold spell tomorrow, but possible rain Wednesday with snow 
at higher altitudes.

Kick Off Thru-Hiker registration in relation to other participants is up 
thirteen hundredths of a percent point over last year.  In other words the 
Probably about 350-400 thru hikers this year.

We already have hikers on the trail down here.  I just put Dan and Anna from 
DC back on the trail this morning.  When they get up your way I suggest 
putting Dan in your kitchen.  He loves to cook and he's good at it.  Two 
great dinners here.

Thanks again for your advise locating the medical help in Mt Shasta last 

Hope to see you up the trail this year.
