Re: Elk Meadows - Put your fires out!

yeah, thanks for putting fire out I've encountered fires before a time or two, what's wrong with people??? My opinion is that for some people it is just plain laziness. For others, it is a lack of education. Personally, I didn't realize how serious fires could be until I saw a fire that had smolder...

Re: 2019 Snow Level

Camped half way up Badger Creek and hiked further, to about 3/4 the way, and no hint of snow. I would assume it is snow free or at least passable. I do not know if the road is open yet. There are more logs down than I have seen in many years. A couple are a nuisance to get around, one in particular...

Re: Backpacking Whetstone Ridge

I don't recall any water sources along that ridge. The water from Silver King Lake isn't all that great either - very "woody". When I've camped up there I used the lake water to cook, but I got my drinking water from a small creek crossing a little north of there - near "Howdy Doody Camp". It has be...

Re: GPS Beacons?

SPOT has been pricing itself out of the market - the initial cost is cheap, but the yearly fee keeps going up. It looks like the new SPOTx might be very similar to the Garmin inReach and the pricing looks similar as well. I've had an inReach for a year now and it has worked really well for me. I se...

Re: GPS Beacons?

I'll throw in that my friend who works for SAR bought himself a SPOT and I've used a SPOT and would myself only consider a SPOT because of the price. I've had friends cross remote areas of Canada by canoe and we all watched their progress which was both fun and safe SPOT has been pricing itself out...

Re: Old PCT route - S. Chambers Lake area?

I don't know if this will help or not, but at the bottom of this page are scans of all the alignments of the old Skyline trail:

Maybe you could match up what you are looking for with one of those maps?
