The way we were...

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.

WD: These are wonderful pics of you- such a bright spirit! Thanks for sharing them. For someone who didn't get to the Sierra until the 1990's you have sure made up for 'lost time' (not that the time was lost really...)

For backpacking, we modified the Gerry pack I used to carry him everywhere (from day hikes to the grocery store - he liked reaching out to try and grab something on a shelf that caught his eye). We stuck the modified Gerry into the Kelty - it fit almost perfectly. The one problem is he rode rather high. From the age of 3-1/2, we did his own walking - we went to May Lake in September and had it to ourselves. After that we limited our distance each day to what was comfortable for him, though sometimes I did carry him for a short spurt at the end of the day when he was tired.

Ok, so 27 years ago, some friends & I decided to hike up to Devils Bathtub above Edison Lake. We didn't make it but had a great time until the next morning. Probably due to what we mixed in with the Gatorade.

Yep. Cotton sweatshirt and jeans. And this was 83...I'd been backpacking since 68 so I should have known better by then!:) Notice the old ensolite pad wrapped around the huge sleeping bag too....

That blue (or is it gray?) shirt with CSUF - would that be Fresno or Fullerton?
I am a graduate of CSU Fullerton.
Cheers,
