Middle Creek Secret/Revitalement Controle #15 (1/2) at mile number 696

Middle Creek Secret/Revitalement Controle #15 (1/2) at mile number 696 is open for business and is manned by a smiling Andrew Mead. His first client this morning was Henrik and his second is Randy Mouri at 8:45 a.m.

The keen observer will note something in the photo that hasn't been recorded during the entire EM1240. SUNSHINE and not shown on picture are temperatures headed into the 70's today. With less than 80 miles to go from this controle it is a toss-up if this weather is a welcome change or cruel insult given the conditions the riders have endured for the past three days.

Earlier this morning at the Pine Grove controle I listened to Rob Welsh reflect on the fact that it took him 24 hours to ride 236 miles. Cold rain mixed with some freezing precipitation may have had some impact on that...

A few more riders just went through...

Joe Maurer* @ 10:39 a.m.

Rob Welsh @ 11:15 a.m.
Micah Fritzinger @ 11:21 a.m.
Bill Beck @ 11:22 a.m.
Vince Muoneke @ 11:57
Vince Sikorski @ 11:57
Noel Howes* @ 11:59

*will not officially finish but he is restarting his ride this morning from Pine Grove and plans to ride to Quakertown.
