Thanks for the update, great news!
I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

I saw that kid as he and his dad were hiking up Taboose on Friday. Stopped to talk to them for a bit. Then I look in the local paper and see his face today. So happy for all of them that all are ok.
