A man trying to hike his way into the history books was way ahead of the game Thursday night.
Ted Keizer, also known as "Cave Dog," is hiking Vermont's Long Trail, and was four hours ahead of the record Thursday night.
The Long Trail runs the length of Vermont from Quebec to Massachusetts.
The Oregon man arrived on Duxbury Road outside of Jonesville at about quarter of one.
"Cave Dog" ran into a bear and said he is having trouble sleeping.
"It's all gone pretty well," Keizer said. "I was pretty sleepy this morning, but otherwise, it has gone really well."
At a recent stop in Jonesville, Keizer's support team gave him food, and a new pair of shoes and put Vaseline on his feet, before sending him back into the woods.
