Friday afternoon - day 8

From the GDR blog:

Jenn calls from Boulder. She was in Pinedale at 4:00 p.m and will be continuing on down the road with Simon and David. She says that Union Pass was beautiful.

Simon's call-in:

In an effort to see how he's going compared to the others and also to the fastest and slowest possible times here's a plot of the times as posted on the leader board.

We already know he's passed Pinedale so this is a bit out of date. I'll update it as the official times come in. Note that Simon and the others may not call when they arrive in a town - they might call in after having a sleep. So it's never clear how they are doing compared to others around them. Hopefully that will become clearer as the race goes on.

The bottom dashed line is the 15 day course record, and the top grey line is the slowest you can go and still reach the finish line within the 24 day cutoff time. I'll expand the chart as time goes on.

As you can see - Simon is doing great.

Cheers, Paul

Simon's awesome and what a supporter he has in Paul. Love the graph, Paul. It really puts things into perspective. Keep it up both of you!

That's a fantastic way to see how Simon lies in the scheme of things. Cheers, Paul. And, as ever, vaya con Dios, Simon!
