K. I'm no where near LAX.. anyone else want to loan out a can?

I would like to think most of us would loan gear if we weren't using it at the time.

Any HST members in the LA area what to step up, and help some fellow east coast backpackers, who are coming here to experience the Sierra in August?
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.

I have an old Garcia, a Bearvault BV500, and BV450, but live in the SF Bay Area, when do you fly out?

I really appreciate that you'd be willing to offer a loaner! But I think I'll just buy one here before I head out. I can just stuff it with clothes in my pack for the flight so it won't take up much room. I could use one anyway for trips in my area.
