Bay Area Backcountry Buddies Message Board › Beautiful & Remote Areas-Partner wanted
Three Rivers, CA
Hi there, I'm looking for backpack partner(s), for safety and companionship, for trips from now through Sept. (or later) to remote areas in the Sierra with off-trail travel and xc passes. I am flexible. Here's part of my bucket list. Email me (keiodrums at sbcglobal dot net), or respond here, and we can talk about style, pace, experience, route, etc. Here's my partial list of incredibly great places:
Dumbbell Lakes in Kings Canyon NP 10 days
Kern-Kaweah basins in Sequoia NP 10 days
Miter Basin/Crabtree Lakes in Sequoia NP 5 days?
Bear Creek alpine area south of Lake Italy in Sierra NF. probably 6 days more or less
Silver Divide in Sierra NF. At least 5 days I would think
Middle Fork Kings river from Tehipite Valley to the JMT or a section of it.
My pack is light (not UL), around 12-15lbs baseweight, I CAN go 12-15 miles on-trail, 5-10 miles xc, and up to 5,000' gain per day, or less. No knee trouble to speak of. Like to fish and eat trout on the way.
Let me know if any of y'all are interested!
