Note, the May start date northbound and the part about lack of rain. His attempt and Jennifer's are very similar in that they both had wonderful weather. I'm not sure how much wetness Thompson had to face.

99 was a good year to avoid rain. From Damascus to the 100 Mile Wilderness, I can only remember being rained on maybe 6 or 7 times.

I met Pete/Cujo just north of SNP the day after Memorial Day at a small hiker feed.
