HELLOOOO "STEPHEN JONES"!!! At 195.5 miles, it's the last checkpoint before THE END. Mike has been roaring along since Tahoe City and barrelled out to finish this thing! With 10.4 miles left in front of him, Mike is racing against the clock!
The 2nd to last checkpoint and 30 MILES from the finish.
MIKE HAS ARRIVED!!
The last 20 miles have been tough - physically, mentally and weather-wise. He's hobbled off the trail to a hotel for a much-needed shower and a few hours of decent sleep in 3 days. Then the team must embark on the final stretch! The time cut-off is 100 hours or 1:00 PM PDT tomorrow.
YES, HE'S STILL OUT THERE and he's picked up the pace!! Mike reached 140.5 miles [Tunnel Creek] at 2:50 AM PDT this morning and got to mile 155.5 miles [Broadway Summit] at 11:00 AM PDT!! 20 minute reboot and he was back on the trail!
