    This trip was truly an adventure. Seeing the waterfall along with seldom traveled sections of the Supes made it worth the effort. I’m happy the trip took this time. Thanks Duane and Ron.

    Finally, this trip is going to happen and the weather is looking ideal. We are down to a group size of 4 which is the minimum number to make this trip work. As always, I want to do a little coordinating with gear to make sure we have enough stoves and water filters. Two of each should be enough for this trip. I will bring a filter for group use and a stove if we are short. Please let me know if you can bring a stove or filter. Also, don’t forget a bag and 30+ feet of cord to hang your food. There is a problem with coyotes at Reavis Ranch.

    Given recent diagnosis from ct scan, I have to wait to get final results. For now, 2 doctors said "no" to this trip. :-(

    Hi Joni, I am so sorry you injured your shoulder. I hope you have a fast recovery.

    Got the day off, cancelled meetings - and now I've injured my shoulder. I really looked forward to this, hoped I'd heal in time, but it's not looking likely. Next time!

    I don't have a 4WD, but if I can carpool with someone I'd be interested.
