Well I’ve signed up for Mountain Education’s Snow Basic Course (SBC) near Echo Lake on April 11-13. So that means that I’ll probably leave home a few days before that, fly to San Francisco CA, visit Stephanie and Justin, and make my way to the course. The course will help me be better prepared when I get to the Sierra Nevada mountains in June. Then after the course I’ll make my way down to Campo CA to start the trail around April 15th. Slowly things are getting put in place.
Update: Terry S. who I met last year at ADZPCTKO, is also taking the snow course at the same time and lives north of LA said that I could catch a ride south with him to the Carpinteria, CA (CPN) train station which would take me to San Diego. From there Frodo and Scout can get me to the trail. Thanks very much Terry, Frodo, and Scout.
