  • SO, who's gearing up for the JMT this summer? I've got my permits for the 25th of July through the 15th of August. Just started training a couple of weeks ago. I'm really looking forward to the trip this year. I have a slot open if anyone wants to join me, my wife and brother. Cheers

  • We're leaving this Saturday, July 8th-23rd. Thanks for the 1st-aid advice. I forgot that nice warm fuzzy feeling Benedryl can give. I just hope the training pays off, and we can avoid any use type injuries. I can't wait!!

One in our party could only get 2 weeks off, so hopefully we can complete the 200+ miles in that time frame. Do you recommend Advil or Tylenol for aches and pains? How about natural sleep aids for the aclimation period. In the past the altitude gave me a headache, but...
