Wow, what a lively picture of birds in the wild on the sunniest of days! They sure wanted you off their nesting turf.

To all of us, hearing about birds instead of a bears comes as welcome relief.

(I must say though that you have rendered less momentous my own--until now super cool--backyard experience watching a pair of robins chase a squirrel off their tree.)

Will you be hassled less by tussocks as you get higher up?

Another, final question: Can you now after 11 days, evaluate the performance of your formula that relates weight carried to miles per day? Or, given your survival concerns at this point, is that a dumb thing to ask?

Godspeed to you and Josh.

I'm curious why a more Southerly line ( which would be less tussocky but more up and down) isn't followed.
