Spinnin' All Nite   (DNF)
Bob Brudvik, Ken Carter, Orin Eman and Pete Rankin
Note: Ken Carter et al, set out from Cayuse Pass, near Mount Ranier at 18:00, in snow. By Snoqualmie Falls ( close to 200kms) all 4 or them were too cold to continue & thus had to quit. Their ambitious route had a potential 687 kms. But Ken assured me they had no serious dream about reaching Hope, the teminus of that treck.
