Reed and Ward from Madison say they're in. Looks like the trip
is a go! To quote part of Reed's e-mail...
Holy crap! You really delivered. I dont think
theres much left to say, except bring it on! I will
give you a call tonight, around 7:00 or 8:00. I have a couple
questions, predominantly gear-related, and we can work out whatever
details that can be worked out 5 months ahead of time. Whats
the permit process for securing this route and these dates?
Im going, you can count on that, short of broken leg bones
or getting hit in the head by a meteorite.
