774Re: [John Muir Trail] Introduction
- Mar 1, 2005Hello Vera:
Tony here in Los Angeles--planning on doing the trail north to south solo in late June. Would love to talk and help if I can. First off, forget the bear bag-hanging...the parks require a bear cannister these days...you can rent or buy...but you probably know that.
Let me know if I can help in any way.

as a long time yahoo hiking group member I will do what I encourage
others to do when they join and will introduce myself. I'm Vera or
the Missing Kink from Indiana. I work as store manager of a small
gear store here. My boss and I are contemplating doing the JMT this
summer. I am a long time AT section hiker and have hiked all over the
midwest...NOTHING like CA. I came close to getting on the PCT a
couple of years ago when I was near San Diego in the MTns at a Girl
Scout camp...wow beautiful scenary!
I am enjoying the photos. A friend of mine hiked the JMT last year
solo in June and since it was a dry year said it was outstanding. My
hiking partner has done quite a lot of western hiking with her
husband. I have been counseled to put my bear bag in bushes so that a
bear doesnt' roll it into a river!..:) I found this to be amusing yet
frightening! :) Needless to say this newbie needs some help...:) so
tolerance please as I pepper you with questions...
thanks more later,
