Yes, I still live! But cell reception has been very chancy and unreliable, and now that I have it, I am down to 21% battery in a high altitude hut with no electrical outlets. I will update with the missing days when the happy facts of reception AND battery life coincide.
In the meantime, my knees hurt. I am 1.5 miles from Mt. Washington, which I will climb tomorrow.
I hike on!
