Most people went around the trail closures missing anywhere from 65-500 miles. Needless to say Ashland was packed with hikers. There's another fire scare around mile 1800 that we'll be running into tomorrow. Hopefully it's a calm day and we can get past it quickly.
I'll try to update this on fire news when I can. If everything goes well we should be done with Oregon around the 20th. It's also where I'm planning on attempting a 40 mile day.
