Having also done my share of "extended" Sierra adventures – years of 90+ continuous summer days with multiple resupply points planned - All I can say is good luck on this strict itinerary thing. Took me more than a few seasons to realize that it is the Sierra herself that dictates agendas, not the other way around. While most admirable all the pre-thought that must have gone into this intended odyssey, feel doubtful that things will actually progress, up there, as you so diligently planned, so meticulously scripted, down here.
Impressed with the epic scope of the proposed trip, but pre-managing all possible facets from the comfort of your living room, fixating on "spread sheets" indicates, well, at least in my mind, naiveté in the hiker. In short, feel you are almost daydreaming on paper. We all do it, does not mean these plans will come to total fruition...always pessimistic as to any "detailed" planning.
Good luck Rogue, hope it all works out, but betting your routes (and timing) will drastically change…probably in the very first week too. Inviting and allowing for the possibilities of serendipity, seems a more rational wilderness approach.
Cannot wait to read your completed TR though.
