It only took me 8 months, but I finally finished my JMT journal. In it I mention how much BPL helped me in the planning process, and also running into 2 members of this website: Ryan Teale and Steve Thompson.

Here's the link:
John Muir Trail Journal

It's a long read. Hope you all enjoy it.

Edit: Updated link.

Good to see you put the wraps on your trip report. I enjoyed the reading and recollection of the good time.

Any hikes planned with summer? Steve

Funny, I also finally posted my trip report just about 2 weeks ago. It was not as nice as yours since i do not have a web hosting site for my pictures. It's down a ways on page 1 under JMT Thru Hike 2009. I started it after I got back but did not finish it until a few weeks ago.

I read each and every day of your trip reminiscing about ours. We did it in 14 days but we camped at some of the same places. Nice job.

I enjoyed reading your trip report and seeing your photos. The JMT is on my short list!

Thanks everyone for the kind words.

Steve: I'll be doing the West Coast Trail in August. Good luck with your return to the JMT this summer.

Scott: I read and enjoyed your trip report. Doing it in 14 days is definitely hard and a big accomplishment, I don't think I'd be able to do it.

Hey Kevin,

Glad to see the rest of your hike went well! The report is very nice. I've gotten through about half of it! I put up some photos on here if you want to take a look. Keep in touch.

For the last couple of days I slowly read through your adventure. It was like a good book; soon after I went off to do something else, I wanted to get back and see what was next. The pictures and videos added a lot to the story. This is one hike I plan on doing someday when I can find the time. Very Inspiring!

Really enjoyed your report! Especially liked the layout with each day getting its own page. Read it all over 2 days during my intermittent bits of free time. Hope to do this hike myself someday.
