Good news, bad news. The good news is that I had a note left for me at the Abol Bridge camp store. I had caught up to Brahma, Sweet P, Hoot and Sundance! I was 2.5 days behind - but was able to close the gap - and they went in town for a day due to weather. I would be able to summit with them! Bad news - it meant that at 4:00, with 14.5 miles already hiked, I had to hike another 10 to be able to summit on the 30th. Sun sets at 6:13 at that point - losing 3 mins of daylight a day - but after 4-5 nights of night hiking (with a couple in the rain) - didn't really matter any more. Check it out 14 miles to go!!!
