Hello folks,
I just found this forum and I am pumped to start planning my next trip. I live in Southern California and I love going up near Bishop to camp and backpack.

Howdy. Live in the East Bay, spend as many weekends in the SIerra as I can manage. I tend to alternate between very relaxing trips with multiple nights spent at the same lake and more demanding trips with fun passes and some peak-bagging. Trying to lighten my pack (in part to give me something to do between trips), and am starting to get into Tenkara fishing.

Hi Maverick, I met you and your companions around Sep 11/12? Searching for Matthew Green on your way toBanner/Ritter. I was with Shhgirl. I really love the outdoors and backpacking but need to do better at route finding and clambering over talus with a 40lb backpack! Any suggestions would be greatly appreciated. Izzie

Hey Izzie,

Welcome to HST!
It was great meeting the two of you. I will send you my phone number via PM, let's talk about those two issues, and whatever else, will be happy to assist in any which I can. :nod:
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.

Hi Jimr, I couldn't remember everybody's name, nice to meet you too. Got some good advice from Maverick about negotiating talus. I was a bit traumatised 4 years ago descending frozen lake pass, my first experience on talus. This time out I felt I did a bit better but still can't float over talus like I have watched some experienced Trekkers perform effortlessly. Hard to find talus to practice on in the Bay Area! Any helpful hints appreciated. Kudos for what you and your team were doing out there!!!

Hi KRW,

Welcome to HST! Do you have a website address, so we can see your knives?
