    Another new west coaster

    Been lurking for a little bit and finally decided to make this thread.
    Finally broke down and bought a Hennessy Expedition last xmas and been iching to try it out. Got two trips planned for the first half of the summer (technically late spring and early summer) - early June in Yosemite, early July a solo section hike of the PCT. Gonna hang during both.

    With the rain we've had this month, I stupidly checked the snow reports... Over 250" where I plan on being in a little over 3 months. It's not going to melt in time. Off to DIY an UQ!

    +1 to that one Fronkey... but addicts have to go to meetings, right?

    Welcome to HF Scorpio and I hope to see you on the trail sometime.

    San Rafael, CA welcomes you. We need to organize a NorCal hang. I'll be in the Trinity Alps this Summer.
