I'm so stoked for this summer's trip...
The wife is coming along, just the two of us out there for 2-3 weeks. I'm boiling over with enthusiasm. Our last trip was on the PCT from Horseshoe Meadows to Onion Valley, that took about a week.

I'm soloing the corridor trails in the Grand Canyon in Feb., and I'm planning to spend about a week hiking in the Shawnee forest in southern Illinois sometime in the spring or fall.
