Awesome Job!!! I haven’t seen your time yet but was thinking about attempting this as well. Too bad I didn’t find it sooner, then we could’ve ran together 

Thanks. Ya I ended up getting through it in 17 hours 21 minutes. I thought I'd do it a couple hours quicker but soft ground and some long rest breaks added up. I hope they post it soon, but it's definitely ripe for the picking! Let me knownif you're going to do it and I'm happy to share some info.

Also, I'd love to have someone in these parts to hit the trails with now and then. 

Man, you beat me to it. I was thinking about this since the spring time. What kind of support did you have? If I attempt it I would like to put up an unsupported time. I think less than 36 hours unsupported is possible. How can I reach out to you for more information?
