The most important thread in this forum

Grab your bear can or camp chair, kick your feet up and chew the fat about anything Sierra Nevada related that doesn't quite fit in any of the other forums. Within reason, (and the HST rules and guidelines) this is also an anything goes forum. Tell stories, discuss wilderness issues, music, or whatever else the High Sierra stirs up in your mind.

The most important thread in this forum

This is very important. We must get to the bottom of these issues, or else humanity is for naught!

1) Cairn or Duck?
2) Treat the water or just drink it raw?
3) Tent, tarp, bivy, hammock, cowboy camp, or skip out on sleep (Harlen is currently thinking about a foodless & sleepless trip to save weight).
4) Whiskey flask, weed gummies, or other? :partyman:
5) Hiking boots or shoes?
6) Skinny dipping or bathing suit?
7) Crampons or microspikes?
8) Fishing: yae or nay?
9) How many reserve in advance permits do you get each year (on average)?
10) How many Sierra places called "Twin Lakes" have you been to?

Great questions. Snow has melted enough that we don't have to think much about them any more.
