    "Crap. We're stuck. The snow accumilation is deep enough to where we can't seem to get up this rise in elevation. It's extremely frustrating, but kind of funny now that I'm typing it out. Oh pickle :/"

    Hope they are ok!
    In deep snow it can be very easy to loose the trail unless it is well marked.

    AS I recall they are about to get another dump after this one. It seems like one storm after another over that way.

    He may be down, but he's not out. From 8 hours ago:

    You hike all day on a high calorie, protein and sodium diet. You snuggle all warm and cozy in your hammock the temps are below freezing and there's nothing that will get you out of that toasty hammock. Then you farted........ :'(

    Is that from his SPOT? Still only see 2 check-ins on his SPOT page.

    I started out a few days ahead of Fronkey .. I pulled a hip flexor and had to abort .. 1st time for everything .. I'm putting a trip report together now .. looking forward to seeing the reports from Fronkey as well .. sub-zero temps play havoc with digital electronics .. I'm sure we all will see some epic footage on a hike that's not just intrepid, but quite the display of valiant perseverance.
