  • I also enjoy hiking solo and did my first JMT at 63. I tried each year sence but have been plagued by knee and foot problems. There is always something "keeping us of the trail" at any stage of life. Finally I will be retired this summer and will have all the time I need to backpack but must get surgey's first. My knees don't hurt enough to be replaced BUT I am thinking I should...

  • Last year I wore white cotton gloves I had found at Bed Bath and Beyond. Actually they were intended for wearing at night with hand cream. I wore them in the day just to keep the sun of my hands. The good news is that my hands were not only exposed to the sun, but my skin was actually in better condition after two weeks on the trail! I think the gloves might have had been treated...

  • Actually, I remember Badger Pass being closed during the summer season. I have left my car at Glacier Point as long as one week.

  • I have hiked the trail several times from GP to LYV and love the dry camp spots I have seen from the trail. I say well worth the few miles you would have to go back from top of Nevada Falls. The views on that trail are amazing. A great way to start your trip. Linda From: Spencer Goodwine To: johnmuirtrail@^$1 Sent: Tuesday, March 20, 2012 11:05 AM Subject: Re: [John Muir Trail...

  • Not to mention carrying aprox 10 days of food, as apposed to leaving HI with 3 days. Still i have been playing with the idea of going NOBO just because I have yet to make it past Kersage Pass. I only lack 30 miles of completing the whole trail. I have hiked the first part now 4 times. This year I am turning 65 and would be so cool to finally do the whole JMT From: Ed Rodriguez To...

  • Let me encourage you, I have never been denied a walk up permit in the 5 years I have been backpacking! I usually hike alone so only need one permit which is a plus. Go for it.

  • Last year I bought some thin white cotton (Ithink) gloves from Bed Bath and Beyond that were intended for use at night with cream to soften hands. I just bought them beacuse they were light and I wanted to protect my hands from sun. Well I wore them for 2 weeks on trail and my hands were not only protected from the sun, they were soft and actually moisturized! Who knew. I will...

  • You keep on keeping on with your Llama. I for one applaud you. I am looking at knee replacement this year and will do what ever it take to keep myself out in the Sierras. Yes Sir!
