It is a nice shelter I can say that. Howevery, the day I was there I was doing my 40 mile day, a personal record. Me and Snowman of 2010 did the last 5 miles at a 5 mile an hr pace solid. Got to the road, no sooner then we hit the pavment we caught a ride to town. We did take a short break there (shelter that is) the water was wonderful and the privy is up hill from the shelter.
