    We will miss having you along. Good luck on the hunt though. I prefer to try shooting with my camera personally, but thats just me!

    Assuming the same basecamp as last year, go to Loop A to the end to campsite # 39. Spamburglar will get the reservation for us, right Spammy?

    Already called to check on it. I was told that it was strictly first come first serve that time of year. They dont do reservations then because they are not busy.Did you reserve it last year?

    I thought I did but maybe not; # 39 was a good spot being relatively level with plenty of trees and within walking distance to the facilities.

    It was a good spot. Last year we were the only ones there, so maybe this year it will be the same. Get a good dinner and breakfast use the facilities and hit the trail! Oh yeah!

    I am glad you found it. That was a nice knife. And the showers up there were great! Clean and plenty of hot water
