- Jul 1, 2008LostHillsGuy Group,
I have a schedule posted at TrailJournals.com. I really don't know
how well I will do, but have planned to be a little slower than you.
I will be fishing along the way, but have to average 10 miles per day
with room for 3+ layover days at that pace. Am not exiting at
Whitney, but continuing on the HST to end up on the Western side of
the Sierras, so 30 days total. Sounds like a good plan, but then, so
did a lot of others . .
IF things go according to schedule, should arrive in YV around 2pm on
the 5th. Will need to get wilderness permit, a fuel canister and a
fishing license (at Curry village, I think). Did consider leaving
right then and not waiting for a 'legal' start on the 6th (maybe this
is allowed, I don't know). While I am prepared to hike at night, and
enjoy it, a lot of scenery is missed in the dark, so may spend the
night at Backpacker's camp and start early on the 6th. I don't
remember ever going 'into' Yosemite park from the highway so this
will have a first time feel to it. Don't want to miss out on good
things by being in haste.
Have learned some about you by googling 'losthillsguy'.
Let the adventure continue.
Walking in peace,
Plan on hiking alone but look forward to
