Chris appears to have made it to Basin -- one of his goals for the day. He wanted to make it to Basin in good time and possibly push on to Butte before stopping for the night. I haven't heard from him yet, so I'm wondering if he's getting food/a room or if he is continuing on. Why is it that the Spot doesn't update when you want it to? It seems to have a mind of its own and update only when it feels like it. The good part about that, though, is that after refreshing the page 900 times, when it does finally refresh it looks like he's gone SUPER far and I get extra excited!
He left a message on our machine from Helena earlier (around 3) and he was eating a good lunch and getting his bike outfitted with a new computer. He said the bike shop was awesome and they were hooking up a wireless computer and also sticking a wired computer in his pack as a backup. I, meanwhile, managed to successfully get his tracks loaded onto a brand spakin' new and shiny GPS from REI.
