    Bring a bugnet or not? I'm leaning towards no. With a low of 46 Friday, and 37 on Saturday, I would think the bugs would be pretty much incapacitated by bedtime either night.

    I will bring bug spray just for the dusk hours when they are active.

    If the springs are running the water should be plentiful. I haven't been up there for a while so I don't know how much rain they have had.
    I may be slow... But I sure am gimpy.

    Much as I hate bugs, I'm gonna take a chance that the temps are low enough that mosquitoes will not be an issue and leave the BIAS NanoBuginator at home. I'll save seven ounces.

    I'm also waiting on a flaming red BIAS Weight Weenie Micro. If it arrives in time, I'll be able to shave another six ounces off my pack weight from my BIAS DL, which I think comes in at 12.8 oz.

    Darn it! Found out about this trip too late. Just finished the STS two weeks ago.

    What is your projected itinerary? Perhaps I could get up and hang at the Sat night site. You looking at Bradley Wales for that overnight?
