The Latest from the Field

Roger reported in for the Gila Monsters yesterday, having found a bar of cell reception in the wilds of New Mexico. From the sound of things the team is having an excellent trip, and although some planned-for water sources are dry, others are bubbling up unexpected. On Tuesday they put in 16.6 miles, pushing on another 12.1 yesterday to Wagon Tongue Mountain.

Team 3 UTM coordinates: 12S 0735222E 3750180N

No word from Ken and Co., although having a satellite phone along doesn't always guarantee steady communication. Reception can be patchy (it was a little shaky while I was testing it from sunny Boulder, CO), and batteries can run dry in a hurry. Check back for updates later today...
