Drought in CA

Rain and snow have helped, but we are far from out of the drought conditions, especially central California:

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

My biggest fear is that people will forget the drought and water conservation since we've had an "average" rain year.
