Those reports would be of great interest as well! That's what the "Beyond the Sierra Nevada" section is meant for.

I agree with the others - great potos and excellent TR. I went on several trips solo only because I had the time to go and no one I knew could go with me those times.
Humans like many other animals evolved to be social. When we don't like people it's time to investigate as to why and I'm talking about investigating ourselves and not others.
As to Italians my experience is that most of them have something in common and it's about women. I'm not saying it's something bad but it is very different from me.
I've been to and liked where you went.
Again - what a great TR.

Now this is what I like so much about forums in the US...or perhaps their members (so to speak)...

Few in the UK would comment on the 'personal' elements of my reports...we are far too shy :D and by definition they are not personal...I've put them on a public forum..

I agree that we (I) need to look to ourselves in some circumstances. As I mention - I'm still not quite sure quite what I wanted from last summer...

I like Italians as my partner is Italian; one must be careful :cool:

I think I'm going to like it here :partyman:

And I'm glad you like the write-ups.

One other question on this and heck, maybe the Scotland trips (yeah, i read bears went extinct there in the 9th or 10th century).

Food storage: what do you use?

In the Sierra I used a Bearikade Weekender* all the time; saw no trace of a bear, not even scat. But hey ho...

*I reckon I could get 8-9 days food into one of those relatively easily as I don't eat much.

In the Wind Rivers we rock-hung. On the TRT I PCT hung most nights.

In Scotland your only worry is marauding Glaswegians on their way home from the pub.....so unlikely to be an issue in the hills :D

Surprisingly, with the addition of the added trout or two - dinners, (The OldRanger and I both also carry Weekenders), many a 14 day adventure has been done...using ~60 liter backpacks. Don't ask me how.
BTW, we never starve...always horsd'oeuvres and nightly cocktails too. :partyman:
Nice TR - thanks!

Thanks for sharing this fantastic TR. Read through all three of them, congratulations on such an incredible journey. Best TR I've read in a long time for sure, maybe ever.
