All Aboard in Durango

Happy 4th everyone! Dropping a quick status report to let y'all know Drew and his crew arrived safely in Durango last night and are now on the train heading to Needleton. Once they arrive, they'll begin the 7-mile hike into the basin. Drew will be officially starting the attempt on July 5th at 04:30 covering Windom, Sunlight, North Eolus and Eolus.


Drew's Garmin Tracker will go live when the journey begins tomorrow so you can follow along, and we'll check in here with another update on his progress.


For today, the energy is high, and today's key words are grateful, nervous, and excited as Drew and the crew make their way to the basin!



Remember that Andrew and Andrea are also underway with their Co-Ed 14er Record Attempt and you can follow their progress here. According to their crew, the trip started off with a bang. The train was shut down due to a mudslide and to get in to Chicago basin they had to cross three mudslides themselves! This was exhausting but they made it to the basin and decided to continue with planned 0400 start despite the rough beginnings. In the end, they had an amazing first day, and according to the tracking, they looked to be ahead of the 2015 FKT pace at Handies! Very inspiring!


As always, feel free to drop a note to Drew in the comments so we can share with him - your thoughts and well wishes always provide an extra boost of energy and motivation for Drew along the trail!


Enjoy the holiday today and see you soon!
