Hi, Ian.  Congrats on your 2018 thru-hike of the ADK-46!  I've been studying your route in prep for trying a thru-hike of my own (tho not any record setting attempt).

I couldn't find verification data for your ascents of Big Slide, Porter, nor Cascade.  Did you do those on day 7 after Giant and before stopping at the base of Cascade?  (I saw that your GPS record ends under Giant at 9:23 am on day 7 and doesn't start again until after 5am on day 8 at the base of Cascade).  On what trail/route(s) did you do Big Slide, Porter, and Cascade?  (do you have Strava data for the remainder of day 7?)
