Well, you may not see the original poster (unless he is REALLY slow!) but rrivera, our paths may cross!!
I also am starting from TM on 8/20. It would be nice to say hello!
And an open invitation to the group... I have a resupply at Charlotte Lake on 9/4 and the packer is fine with extra hikers as long as the total pack weight < 80 lbs total. I certainly don't need 80 lbs so would be fine with helping a fellow hiker get resupplied. There might be a small charge for the packer to pick up your resupply package but the cost of the drop is covered.
If you've been searching for the best source of information and stimulating discussion related to Spring/Summer/Fall backpacking, hiking and camping in the Sierra Nevada...look no further!

I never did the JMT. I was always too busy cross country. I always thought I'd do it when I got too old for cc. But after getting old enough to think it was time to do it I got stopped by 7 major surgeries. However the one that really stopped me was the heart beta blocker medicine I had to take after the by - pass surgery which was only the 2nd surgery. The other surgeries were just nails in the "coffin".
