Canada, where are you?

Whoop, whoop

Whoop, whoop, whoop, whoop, whoop. Since we arrived at camp about 5 we have been listening to a constant call of a grouse. Guess we invaded his territory, can't blame him, and maybe it's that time of year. We can live with that. What we can't live with was the group of about 15 Korean hikers who passed through, drones blasting. They were obviously loving it, and thank goodness for international relations that they didn't stop here. All motorized devices and specifically drones are prohibited in the Pasayten Wilderness. If we catch up with them tomorrow, I'll vent.

On a more pleasant note. We did an easy 16 miles today, to allow us to get to camp early, rest, and be ready for our final day, which will be 23.5 miles. Fortunately mostly down hill. Light packs, rested, we think we can do it. Hey, and no blisters the whole trip. Only casualty is after about 4000 km, all of New Zealand, Corsica, and some more, the zippers on our tent have failed. Luckily after the freeze two nights ago the bugs are way down.
