Hi Cory, "stuck songs" seem to be a common challenge. Hope to see you at an upcoming meetup and introduce you to some people you may enjoy collaborating with to "unstick" some songs.
Lots of helpful suggestions from the members on song structure. So bring us a song soon.
Cory - I have a ticket on Allegiant I need to use I would need to fly out Friday after work and get back sunday night. The date that works good for me is August 20. I would be flying from vegas and would probably just want to drive straight to the trailhead and start hiking. If the light and fast one day attempt appeals to you let me know.
Shasta in Oct??? That's odd. Go in May or June when the snow is good.
Oct. is the end of the Sierra season and the begining of the desert season.
Snow climbs March through June.
Cory-Welcome to Southern California Camping & Hiking Cooperative. If you have any questions, feel free to email me. Living for the weekends - always. Enjoy the adventures! Andrea
