A few of you here have expressed interest in my hiking adventures over the years so here's a heads up on the next trip......
I leave right after Labor Day in a couple weeks for an 11 day 110 mile backpack of some more of the Sierras. You read that and think big whoop, I can walk 10 miles. Yup. But can you do it 10 days in a row with your house on your back? At age 65 and counting? Yeah, I'm nuts.
This section will be interesting for me as its one of the less remote areas compared to some parts of the Sierras. I'll be leaving Donner Pass at I-80 heading south to Ebbetts Pass State Hwy 4. Most of it is within reach of day hikers so we expect to see more people than we usually do.
We leave with 3 days food then get resupplied with the other 7 as we can't stuff 10 days worth in to our bear canisters. Should be fun as always!
