Neal finished the Vermont 100 in 16:33, about 30 minutes behind winner Andy Jones-Wilkins and just nine minutes ahead of top female Kami Semick. He is now 2-for-2 in the Grand Slam. Justine Morrison was the top VHTRC female, finishing her first 100 miler in 23:23. Prasad Gerard, Tammy Massie, Tammy Bagdhassarian, and Twila Brown also finished. The results indicate that there were many drops; perhaps they had the heat and humidity we had here as well? Vermont 100 website

It seems that the Roy Rogers and Dale Evans Museum is no more. But all the stuff is for sale. Among the items on the auction block are movie posters like those in the snack bar at the Skyline Ranch Resort. In yet another connection to trail running, the museum used to be in Victorville, California (before it moved to Branson). Victorville is the biggest city near Wrightwood, the start of Angeles Crest. It was the place to stay if you wanted to "sleep low" before AC! Happy trails!

Scott Brockmeir was the leading VHTRC finisher at the Hardrock 100 in Silverton, Colorado. Other VHTRC finishers included Jack Kurisky, Mike Bur, and Robert Andrulis. Leonard Martin finished, but over the time limit by two minutes. We are not sure how they are counting that, but it is an impressive achievement regardless. Live Hardrock Reports

In what has become a long tradition, a VHTRC group celebrated the Fourth by doing the Browntown Loop. This loop is about 20 miles and features a stop at the store in Browntown about two thirds of the way through. Thanks to a call from Gary, the store was open just for us even though it is usually closed on Sunday morning. It was warm but not too bad considering it was the Fourth. The forest is very dry! The party at the end wasn't. Photos on Flickr (click photo above for larger version)
