Tomorrow I head back to the John Muir Trail with my friend CW. We are starting at Tuolumne Meadows and exiting Mt Whitney 12 days later. I built in 3 days buffer time because we need to wait in line at the ranger station for a permit.
We are trying something new to manage the logistics. This year we are flying to Vegas, driving to Whitney Portal, dropping the car, hitching to Lone Pine, taking the bus from Lone Pine to Mammoth, staying a night in Mammoth, and taking YARTs to Tuolumne.
If you want to follow our progress, you can use the Link to my SPOT below – note it will say nothing until we get to California: http://share.findmespot.com/shared/faces/viewspots.jsp?glId=0179jVuAGURK27cN8Flk29Ad2cpyINpEs
