Hiking / Backpacking

After coming back from the Sequoias last month, I have been sporting some serious wood for the woods. I've been getting into hiking quite a bit, and want to move up to backpacking, where I can take multi-day trips through the back country. My ultimate goal is to hike the entire length of the John Muir Trail, from Yosemite to Mt. Whitney (220mi).

They say "Vasque" on them. They're just ordinary hiking boots I got at Sports Chalet a few years back.

That's great Rev. I hope you find a nice light set up for yourself. I'll have to search up the trail and read more about it.


The distance is one thing....
but the elevation is UP there man

Be advised about that, I don't know how long you're been in elevation before,
So I'll share that in my Wife and I's experience of going to new place and being high up in the mountains,
when we wanted to set out on a hike and such, it gets you winded pretty quick.

Not sure how to 'train' for that... but just be aware of it when you start.
Maybe elevation hikes throughout the year.

Dehydration is what REALLY rocked me about elevation.

backpacking is definitely my favorite activities... it might just be my favorite "thing" ever!

I haven't been out longer then three nights in almost two years. My backpack is always ready to rock and roll. When I get home from a trip I wash/clean everything and load it all back up so all I have to do is grab a few things. The dogs even have their own packs. I ain't carrying anyone else's food and water.

Rev use this to find trails local to you. Hiking Trails, Parks & Backpacking - TheBackpacker.com

I know in NY you are not allowed to camp on most state owned trails. A lot have designated areas.
Next week I am taking Friday off and leaving Thursday evening. I am going to hike around Bear Mountain for a few days. I haven't mapped out my trip yet. The area I usually go can be a little rocky. Rocky trails = broken doggie legs... and I don't really feel like carrying a dog on my back out of the woods! Happened once...

I found that out today, hiking to the top of Mt. Baldy. It's 10,064 at the summit, and I went through WAY more water than I thought I'd need, based on my previous hiking experiences.

Hiking/Backpacking is my passion. I've done dozens of trails in the three months I've been in yellowstone, and this weekend was my first trip to the tetons.

Started with an eight mile hike to holly lake, camped there, crossed paintbrush divide, hiked up to hurricane pass, camped in alaska basin, crossed buck pass, crossed static peak divide, and finally descended into death canyon.

It was pretty epic. Something like 45 miles in total, over three days. Crazy elevation.





And yeah, I tripped the first night out. Heh.

The big thing about altitude is what's already been said. You have to stay almost overly hydrated, and you're still going to be a pretty weak hiker at elevation until you're acclimated. If you're just passing through high-elevation areas, don't try and push your limits. Knowing how much your body can handle becomes really important in places like these.

Good luck with all your adventures, Rev. This is my religion, I'm always glad to see more people converting.

Be safe everyone.

I love the Sierras wish I could of made it there this summer. My favorite hike is to a mountain 60 miles from sf and can still see the skyscrapers when it's clear.

I haven't seen the Rockies for 20 years. I gotta get back. There are so many epic trails. Fortunately, I have the High Sierra relatively near, and a few mountain ranges surrounding my general area. I agree with the consensus, Ellis, you look great man. And I am loving your religion.
