We've got tee shirts, a theme song, and a slogan (Coookie Cooooooon!).
What else do we need?
Assuming y'all don't mind a new guy, I'm in. I'm usually strive for ultralight, so I can always bring my bigger pack and haul extra water.
Also, assuming I'm not too weighed down by a small lake in my pack, I'm willing to take the longer trail.
My plan is to hike the short trail with my Basecamp filter and several empty gallon jugs, then filter water there so that those hiking in on the other trails need only carry what they personally think they need and have some waiting on them at the Lake. The Basecamp holds a couple gallons, so we should be able to filter all the water we need, especially for cooking.
It would take a pretty stiff drought to dry that pond up. We'll know by July if there's any danger of that.
And that kilt thing sounds like the only way to keep a handle on staying cool. Unless Spacey hauls in all those electric fans on the wagon/travois.
Take it easy,
Everything in moderation.
Moonshine, starry night, hammock...and hydration.
I like to "hydtrate" with rum. I do have trouble with the "moderation" part though
If you ain't havin' fun, you're doin' it wrong
