JMT in August on 06/25/2008 23:56:02 MDT Print View

I'm looking to do the JMT sometime in August - anyone interested?

About Me: I'm a 32(old) male, Graphic Designer from Venice Ca. I consider myself an experienced lightweight backpacker, although i've been sitting at my desk for 2 years...(I've been training for a little over a month). My base weight will be somewhere between 9 and 11 lbs. I'm looking at doing anywhere between 13 and 20 miles per day.

Hey Terry,

Shoot me an email. I've been thinking about doing JMT sometime this summer as well.

I'm going too. Probably on August 15. I'm not looking for a partner but maybe I will see you guys on the trail. I will start from Tuolumne Meadows.

I am a 29 years old, recently married, looking to complete the JMT this year as well. I predict about in the same length of time. I had originally planned on going with my usual backpacking partner, my brother, but since he is 10 years younger than me, he is not that dedicated yet.... maybe in a few years!

I live Long Beach and in IT. I have backpacked for about 20 years off and on, but over the past 6 years have managed to catch a few trips a year to the Sierras (mostly Mineral King area).

Let me know if you are interested. Good luck!
