The only places you can not hang your bag are on Whitney, Rea Lakes Loop area, about 3 miles around Duck lake, (which is about 6 miles before you get into Yosemite), and the last 55 miles of the trail.
The only time that I can sleep, (or will) sleep on the trail in those areas is in the day in a parking lot along Reds Meadow or Tuolumne, (if possible), because the parking or visitor areas of those areas are pretty much part of the trail. For the rest of it I'll just have to suck it up. I definitly won't be taking off my pack and leaving it alone for any period.
On the parts that I can hang, first off I do not plan to sleep at night in the areas known for bears. So if I have to hang, it will be away from the crowded areas and low-line junctions.
The food will also be in an O.P. Sack and hung by the Sea 2 summit bag.
I have asked about the areas that bear-proof containers are a must. Because I am considered a day-hiker, meaning I will not be stopping or putting my bag down, then I do not need to have the BP Container.
Of course I'm sure I'll have a hard time convincing some of the ranger this, (that I will not be stopping). I will have the emails about it. If they really don't trust me, they can just try following me through to the end of required area, ha ha!!!
I know I will be giving a hard time with them, seeing me with a 1650ci, 15 lb pack and telling them I'm going to Yosemite.
