Chris called at about 3:15 from Buena Vista! He said the previous segment was really fun and nice. He was restocking, eating a delicious hamburger and shake, and meeting up with Doug before heading on his way. He is excited to have someone to ride with and sleep near tonight. I'm not sure if they'll stick together tomorrow or not, but either way, knowing he will have company for at least part of this long section seemed to make him excited.
I should hear from him next maybe Friday night or early Saturday, so until then I'll be refreshing his SPOT page obsessively.
