    But there is still Casa de Luna about 20 miles north, and the KOA about 10 miles south. Neither...

    You say you have hiked sections of the PCT, do you have any experience in Southern CA? SoCal is very hot, dry, and exposed for hundreds of miles. I think hiking in rain pants (even light ones) is a...

    Rj, with your schedule you might average average 25 per day. (So you do five days in a row of thirty, then take a zero haha!!) That would put you at KM around June 6. In 2013 you would definitely...

    If you have used your pack for 4-5 day hikes, then it will definitely work! Thru-hiking is not this mysterious thing that requires more gear. It is nothing more than a bunch of 3-5 day sections, all...

    Yes, maybe 10-K can chime in here but I recall he left KM maybe at the end of May which is a few weeks earlier than normal. Even a week or two can make a big difference in snow melt. In 2013, another...

    The most common time to start is the end of April or beginning of May. I agree that March 1 is too early for a start date. As others have said, even long before the Sierras there could be snowed-in...
