    Excellent report and photos. I really need to get out there sometime. Also, can't wait for my S95 to arrive now. You guys are quite tallented!

    Down from the door where it began.
    Now far ahead the Road has gone,
    And I must follow, if I can.
    Pursuing it with eager feet
    Until it joins some larger way
    Where many paths and errands meet.
    And whither then? I cannot say."

    This was my first "Hike and Hang". I had done some smaller day hikes but in the kind of places you could walk your dog and get by with a bottle of water and PB&J and my camping trips were parking one mile from the campsite and tenting it. Thankfully Tiles was kind enough to share a needs list with me so I had somewhat of a clue of what I needed. I was not however able to get a sleeping bag or underquilt before the trip so I brought along about 15 lbs of extra clothes.... I'll just give you run down of my sleeping arrangement for a good Monday chuckle. I managed to secure a Hennesy Expedition Asym but that is pretty much were any symbolism of 2011 ends, my underpad was a reflective sunscreen for a car that I picked up at Wal-Mart on my way to Tiles and my sleeping bag was basically a really thick fleece that I stole of my kids bed. I had on two pairs of wool socks, underwear, long underwear and pants. A short sleeve Cap 2 shirt under, a longsleeve Cap 3 shirt, under a down jacket and 2 toboggans. I slept in 1-2 intervals until I would slide off the sunscreen and start freezing, then I would readjust and go through the whole process again. It was still such an awesome time I would do it again in a second. Anyway I've blathered long enough here are some of my pics which if Zod considers himself Andy Adams I would be Andy Griffith.

    This is the point on the hike up Pinch In where I pretty much wanted to start a fire and burn my pack and Zod for taking us out this way

    Zod praying I don't burn him...


    The Pic that made the whole trip worth while...

    Teddy Pendergrass, sounds like you had a good time even if you weren't fully equipped. Great pics, thanks for sharing those. This must have been one incredible trip from what we all hear.
