Start of Day 2: Porter's Gap (AL-77)

Posted by posted by Josh Kennedy

The PTAR FKT team pulled out of Sylacauga at 5am, and picked up the trail again at Porter's Gap, starting just before 6am. 2x Pinhoti 100 finisher John Nevels arrived same time for pacing duties all day. Passed through Chandler Springs 6:48am and then Clairmont Gap about 8:20am. My oldest, Matthew (10), is dead asleep in the truck after having a VERY busy and enjoyable day hopping around trail locations yesterday; he was treated to another 4am wakeup, had pop-tarts and milk for breakfast agian, and promptly crashed out in the front seat as we left Sylacauga!

Blake Thompson and Kathy Youngren will join the effort later this morning.
