My Locale Extreme northern Sierra Nevada
About Me I'm 60, single male. I had been in Retail Management for over 30 years. I have mostly solo bped since the early mid '70's. I XC some, not afraid to go alone, I also solo winter camp, even out in sub-zero temps. A few years ago, I went on a backcountry bp to Alaska, where I flew in by bush plane with five others into Wrangell/St. Elias NP. Since early 2010, I have been collecting vintage/antique camping and bp stoves, having acquired over 90 now. I like many outdoor activities, from bping to dirtbike riding, gardening.

Camping at South Lake
Christopher, There are a few campgrounds on the way to South Lake, I just hate paying, but the higher you can camp the night before, the better to acclimate. One trip I did camp down in the valle...

Places to camp at South lake?
Usually you only get the permit for your day of entry, I get mine the day before, so I can't start my trip on time. Last time at South Lake, I drove most of the way up, checked out the last ca...

Sabino Trail
Thanks Tom, that was a option I was looking for too, a discontinued model to save a few bucks. More stove collecting money. :) Duane

My neighbor charged by a bear
Doug, my neighbor saw one more pile than I did, all bear. He was concerned enough about this, that he is considering getting some pepper spray now. He has a few grandkids and enjoys South America...
