I am looking to Hike the JMT this year. My original partner flaked, but I have been wanting to complete it before I turn 30... next year!
I have never partnered up on BPL, but I am imagine compatibility is important, so here is a little about me and my plan...
I am a 29 years old, living in Southern Ca. and have been backpacking off and on for most my life. This trip has pushed me in to UL backpacking, but with a 40 lbs. pack I have been able to complete 20-25 miles days for 3 day trips. I have significantly dropped pack weight this year to help maintain 20-25 mile days for 9-11 days on the JMT.
I regularly backpack in the Sierras a couple times a year, mostly Mineral King area. My favorite trip is Mineral King (Franklin Lakes) to Whitney Portal in 3 days.
My plan is early to mid August (after Aug 2... my wedding anniv... the wife would kill me). 1-2 resupplies for a 9-11 day trip.
Let me know if you're interested!
