Final Attempt to Continue?[30 July 1998] The Fox contacted us early this afternoon and announced that he will again attempt the trail tomorrow, ending his rest on its fourth day. His foot does not hurt as badly as when he left the trail, but he faces the real possibility that he may have to end his hike prematurely. He will make the decision to continue or terminate the hike within the next two or three days.
