Yoda (or the Hiker formerly know as Cranky Bear)
I've been following this thread. I'm interested in this hike and I've got it on my radar.
I've got some traveling I have to do for work in Aug. (work keeps getting in the way) but I think the 4th - 10th might work. Sounds like to right pace and distance for me, I really hope it works out for me to go. As long as I have enough water hiking in hot weather is doable for me although I sweat so much you don't want to be downwind.
