Comments
Comments: Long day, broke trail from Zealand Hut to West Bond, some drifts thigh high. Lost trail just after Zeacliff and again after Zealand to Guyot. Thanks to StinkFeet and all other who came in from Lincoln Woods it made the long day bearable. Brushed in a few wrong turns in the west Bond spur. Saw only six people all day. Came out at 8 PM, realized again how much I dislike the death march from Bondcliff Trail to Lincoln Woods. All in all a good day with great friends. Congrats to Bernie who finished his Trailwrights 72 on West Bond and Winter 48 on Bondcliff!
