bugger, i said as best as i remembered.
official count last year was
12453 posts,
831 pages.
we might be down slightly on the pace of last year.
but as with all good endurance events, you need to ramp in and go bull at a gate first day.
we should still be ok.

Jonah is at KM234, this should be at WP4. Maybe Ned or Bill will tow him in?

Hopefully not, he was in a tough spot last year and got it figured out. Unless he is bleeding oil, he still has a chance.
