My Locale Moderator-JohnMuirTrail Yahoo Group
About Me Formerly from MN and NY, now in Reno, NV, I have been hiking every summer in the High Sierra since 2000. From 2000-2007, we did the High Sierra Trail (HST). Been doing the John Muir Trail since then, every year. I am the lead moderator for the JohnMuirTrail@YahooGroups.com for 2011-2013. I organized groups (without charge) for the JMT, 2008-2011 for the hike I participated in (from 5 to 8 people). I'm doing a JMT 2014 group hike again.

Re: Pls. Clarify
Thanks Bryce, did you go with the .74 cuben fiber or .51 cuben fiber thickness? I forget what the Zpacks Cuben Fiber equivalent thickness is (I have the duo hexamid tent myself by Zpacks).
