    If you are talking about hiking from Campo To San Jacinto in August, I would ask you reconsider. The only way I'd consider hiking it then would be hiking at night for most of it. Then there is the...

    When I cook I prefer the Freezer bag method because I don't need to clean up my pot afterwards. I love hiking, but despise camp chores and want to do the bare minimum in camp. And if I'm not adding...

    Thanks. As a last minute procrastinater, that really helps. I was going to start my trip in less than 2 weeks, so the promised 2 day turnover works. Just placed my order.

    I'd like instructions on how to fill out the form. It asks for where you plan to visit and I don't know what parts of the CDT line up with the different land boundaries. Can't we just put CDT?

    The problem is, the long dry stretches are the main portion of the trail not covered in snow. The storms keep coming and dumping more snow, even in the mountains of SoCal.

    Eagle Rock is a few trail miles south of Warner Springs, not Julian. No sign on the road for it that I know of; at least there didn't use to be.

    Note, Railrider usually restocks their line in March. So they should have their EcoMesh pants back in stock by early April if you can wait.
