Don't worry about hijacking. I'm guessing there's plenty of room out there for all of us!
I'm glad that it sounds like this route is in the ballpark of what I was hoping for (beauty, remote, not too many miles/day).
I'm still mulling over starting at Lamarck or Piute. In addition to being easier, another advantage to Piute is we could use a Ursack for food storage (b/c we'd be exclusively in Inyo, I believe) rather than the heavier bear cans. But based on reading previous threads, I know people have strong opinions on this one.
Thanks again for all the tips.
