I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

The wikipedia page for Permethrin http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Permethrin" onclick="window.open(this.href);return false; says that it is toxic to cats, so keep the treated clothing away from your pets.

Only when it's wet. My cat has slept on my dry treated pants many times without so much as a rash or a sneeze.
