I'm Dan, A lot of you already know me. I have been hiking for years and like doing it.
Thanks to Arnold Schwarzenegger, like everyone else these days, I'm kinda tapped out, so perhaps someday?
Just arrived lastnight in West Sac, staying with family - preparing for a weeklong Yosemite backpack, and just saw this excursion. I hesitated to push 'yes' til I knew more - cuz I don't yet have a bear can or trail food... could you call my cell and tell me details? [masked]
Dan: Thanks for letting me know that someone dropped out, but I already committed to a trip to Trinity Alps when I wasn't originally selected for this trip. It sounds like you won't have any problem finding a replacement. Have a great time.
Hi Dan, It looks like you have confirmed 12 people but there are still 3 slots available. I hope that you can add me as one of those because Cristina Lauck and I were planning to drive together. We had both been signed up for the week long Emigrant Wilderness trip following this one, but I think that one is going to be cancelled. I would like to get on at least one trip this summer.
OK - after re-reading the trip description, you do state you don't decide on the final roster until a few days before. Now I understand, no need to comment to my previous question. I will wait and see (and keep training ;-) and hope for the best! Thanks...Shari P
Hi Dan, I wasn't sure how to email you. I am new, but I am hiking and getting in shape. I will be ready for the 7/27 backpack trip I signed up for on 6/30 and got email acceptance confirmation? I am now on the waiting list, and need to know what my chances are of actually getting to go; my equipment needed upgrading so I sunk a fair amount of change into gear for this trip, so please let me know, thanks...Shari P :-)
On the trip to Cottonwoods, can you give the details about what the length of hiking is each day and how much elevation gain/loss there is each day? Also, where are we meeting and may I carpool with anyone from Sac.? I live in Davis.
Hi Dan, i just signed up for the Yosemite July 20 trip but i have a few questions. Please call me at home [masked] or i can call u. pls e-mail me,[masked] ur contact #. thanks
Hi Dan; I hiked up past Frog Lk this evening (didn't go to Winnemucca or beyond, since hikers coming down said there were no wild flowers). Just so you know, there are still lots of snow crossings on the trail, especially past Frog, where I crossed one that was about 200 ft. So boots instead of tennies and hiking or ski poles might be a good idea , especially for those going all the way up. Don't expect many wildflowers. We saw some, but nothing like previous years. 7 more days may help some
Dan - i thought there was a waiting list for Dinkey lakes, and gave up on it, especially since you kicked me off the list of an earlier trip when i tried to sign up. Have a good trip.
Hey Dan, did the open spot posted 7-27-10 on Dinkey Lakes get taken? If is is still open count me in. Del Smith
