Allen first into Braeburn

Allen crested a hill overlooking the small community of Braeburn just as people were turning their headlamps off. Hint of some sun coming up now. His arrival time is 8:23 which gives him a departure time of 4:23pm. Hugh Neff arrived 13 minutes behind Allen according to my stopwatch. Due to the rounding of minutes, the official time might be a bit different. Allen is feeding and doing doggy care and will come inside for breakfast soon. He indicated that there was some tough overflow which he believed Hugh spent more time dealing with.

More soon.

Thanks Wes. So, 12 min plus Hugh's 30 min penalty gives Allen a 42 min lead when he heads out later today. Guess we will be glued to the trackers again tonight. Exciting and amazing. Rest well then go like the wind! Go dogs!
