My Locale California
About Me I live in the San Francisco Bay Area with my wife and two children. I have hiked and backpacked throughout the state and beyond. I'm always looking to lighten my pack and lengthen the days and mileage of my trips. Favorite trips I've taken include thru-hikes of the John Muir Trail, High Sierra Trail, and Tahoe Rim Trail.

Tony: Thanks for posting all the pics. This was one of my favorite trips. Deadman Canyon was beautiful, and the solitude in such an amazing place was also great. Next time we'll hit up Clou...

Re: Jeremy and Tony
Sheila: Spring and fall are the best times to go hiking in the East Bay. Summer gets very hot. This was a very wet spring so things got a bit saturated and thus muddy, but typically the ground s...

Re: Tahoe Rim Trail - Bear Boxes?
I don't remember any bear box at Brockway or anywhere else on the TRT. We cached water at Brockway last year, but stashed it in the bushes.

I have to add my two cents about MLD's service. Early this summer I damaged the bottom of my Exodus pack. The damage was completely my fault (sliding down granite). I wrote Ron and asked if he ...
