Richard Westbrook’s location of end of day 3. Roughly 2 miles before Wren.

Westbrook gave us a scare! His phone died on him and he was unable to call and check-in at his appointed time. When I checked in with the race director to see where he was, they set out with a search party for hours. After much going back and forth, I decided to drive the four hours or so to find him myself when the phone rang. Found him! He let us know his phone died and there was nowhere around for him to charge it. He was also unable to find a convenience store or anything for food so he went without eating for the day and night. Once he slept for all of 1.5 hours and found a McDonald’s (albeit out of the way and off course, but necessary) he charged his phone, filled his belly, and called to give us his whereabouts….THANK GOODNESS! He is still trudging along some backroads down there somewhere….
