I was going to say that if you figure out where his track will put him in 7 hours, he'll have gone 35 miles. If you aim at that point for seven hours, you will have gone 49. 35 and 49 make the 84 miles you said separated you. However, you said your bearing from him was 96šT, so that's not right. Yotphix seems to have the right idea, but I'm thinking it will take something like 18 to 19 hours to get to see your friend based on the original distance and bearing.
