It Never Always Gets Worse!

This is cool stuff, northinsouth, and I couldn't resist looking up some geo coordinates and putting them in.

I also took a look at the whereskarl site and it seems like it's going OK but perhaps he's a bit behind right now. After eebee's post about failure I was attuned to comments about the challenges. Karl had a 60 mile day (wow!), then the yesterday was in a funk and did 20. Then he had a notable visitor with a great quotation of the Yogi Berra sort, or mountain wisdom sort...

...Karl was greeted by David Horton, who has previously held the AT speed hike record, and he said it best – “It never always gets worse”. It seems that the visit from David helped, as David gave some words of encouragement to help Karl along....

It seems he's about 16% behind his goal in miles, if I understand it. You go, Karl. Roadskaters are wishing you sweet speed and healthy feet.
