At least one more day, and possibly three, as the degree of difficulty of this Mission has gotten a little bit too high, and unexpected support has arrived. The heater up in the mountain is exercise, hiking, walking, and possibly cycling. But with the 7 in of snow that arrived on the mountain last night cycling is not a good idea due to safety issues for the next several days while hopefully things melt, and hiking and walking are severely reduced due to Achilles tendon damage. And the arrival of an unexpected generous contribution yesterday plus the availability of a very nice affordable hostel here in town, with an extremely good man as the proprietor, all are going to result in some further time here down in town.
The laptop for certain applications is not useful up there because there's no ability connect to the Verizon signal. But here in town there is Wi-Fi so that project will receive some time while here in town.
