I woke up 2 hours late and decided to still give it a go. I left my house about 445am. The 2 eagles were overlooking the verde :y: on route to my destination . The route I chose for today was gonna be kinda difficult. My 1st motherlode was an MLDV with Joe and Chris(kinda difficult hike guy). This day started off with more problems. My bladder leaked from my Cholla incident on Friday. I lost 2 quarts of water and my bottom was wet. I had frozen water bootles in my pack and thought the wetness was from the condensation :doh: . So I had 3 1/2 liters and a Motherlode on steroids kinda day left.

I started on the AZT heading in the opposite direction from last time. I knew my occipital lobe would be in overload. It was so much so that I overshot my off-route area. The ridgeline up to Browns was ruggedly awesome with views that can't be expressed with words or pictures.

As I descended Browns, I heard voices and as I ascended 2 I saw two guys. We chatted for awhile and we decided to hike together. I was off and shortly after, one of the guys caught up and told me his friend bailed. I saw the other guy on and off from 2-4. We pretty much stayed together down to the mine and back to the car. The mine gate was open today...A first for me. When we got to the TH, his friend wasn't there. :scared: Hopefully there will be a happy conclusion, but we both felt he should have made it back way before us :pray:
