This will probably be my itinerary:

I intend on flying into LAX Sunday/Monday.

On Tuesday, the plan is to proceed and make the four hour drive to the Visitor Center near Mt. Whitney.

Wednesday, get to Whitney Trailhead and get started. Proceed to Trail Camp and rest.

Thursday, get up at sunrise and proceed to the Summit.

After summitting, hike out and enjoy a celebratory beer.

Friday, enjoy a huge breakfast and fly back home.

I can add up to 5 hikers on this hike.

Price per hiker = $15 for the overnight permit to access the back country.

If you commit to going and fail to make arrangments to pay you will be removed.

Please understand that I need to respond to the permit administrator as soon as possible.

We can meet as discuss details after this trip.

I will be on many hikes between now and April 15 to discuss.

Feel free to contact me with any questions.

Published air fare today ~ $400 round trip.
