MR340 update

Just talked with Mike and Sandy and they sounded great. They are closing in on Herman CP and are looking forward to topping off the ice chest. Mike said yesterday was a very tough, very hard day like he has not experienced in a long time. He said they are holding tight to the pace they need to run and feel good that they are taking care of themselves under the unrelenting sun. He said today will be the ultimate test for them and they were going to keep it movin, he was also glad to see some clouds moving in.

Jack and Tim are just about in at Klondike, if they can pick up their pace for the final 20 mile sprint into St Charles they could beat the 50 hour mark. Go Guys, Paddle Paddle Paddle-   

As of this posting about 80 boats have dropped out, this event is "very tough, very hard"!!!!
