Happy Birthday
For my birthday, I was in the middle of the Centennial Mountain Range with Mel and Chris our guides.


I was awoken this morning by the singing of Rob Carlo. He sand "Happy Birthday" and gave me a card, signed by the entire team. It was great. Then he gave me a pin that he had been wearing that was a memorial pin of September 11th.
Being so excited, I was told I had to go over to get the rest of my presents from the others. The support team sent the other 3 trekkers with a bag of my favorite gummy bears. I was floored. Even though I was away from home, I very happy to be where I was.

Ok! Enough birthday, we packed the day and headed over two mountain ranges and closer to the head waters of the Missouri.
We ended up hiking around 16 miles. I was beat. I was so tired I could barely walk.
From now on each birthday, I will try to do something that is really hard. Today classifies as one...
Once we got to camp, it was right at dark. We had steak for dinner. The best part is that a mule carried my birthday cake in for two days for me to enjoy. It was such a surprise, I had no idea.
Today I turned 25. It was a great day.

Hope all is well.
We will proceed on.
