Rogue, Thanks for your efforts; very well done. Including the missing cords was brave to show we are all "human". I enjoyed it all. Keep it up to get us through the not so friendly winter season. :thumbsup:

Yeah I need to get on it with writing. Last year the biggest problem was it took me allot longer to finish the photos then the writing. But I am on week 11 with photos so if I can just get it written then it can be up soon.

Great TR. I finished 95 Days a few weeks ago and am glad to see you got to your goal of over 100 days this season. Have you ever read any books by Paul Theroux? I have only read Paddling the Happy Isles of Oceania, but your treks remind me of that book. Your photos are also awesome. Nice work all around.

Nice job getting out for that long. Everyone always says "I wish I can do that" but it's simply not true. Almost anyone that can physically make the trip can do it but other things in their life are more important. And in most cases they should be.

Nope I haven't read any of those.

Ahh Rouge. I was referring to reading about YOUR 95 days! :D I spent a total of 14 days in the Sierras last summer in 3 different trips. Like many of the fellow HST folks, I am reliving the magic of the Sierras through your TR's.

Like many have already said; Many thanks for sharing the details of your trip. Your writing style and photos convey the feeling of the journey, "The mountains were the only real home I knew. . .". Looking forward to the next chapter.

Great part one- looking forward to the rest! My longest trips are usually only 8-10 days. It is shocking to me when I return from a trip, and I get out of my car in what is supposed to be a quiet suburban neighborhood in NW Bakersfield... How noisy, oppressive, and stinky Bako seems after a return from the Range of Light.
