It’s?now about a week away from my?start date, and as promised, here is the latest version of my itinerary.
As with most expeditions of this nature, some flexibility is needed. With that in mind, this itinerary is bound to be changed at some point. There really is no way to be prepared for every single eventuality, so just knowing that and building in some cushions and options here and there is very important. As an example, I’ve already modified my itinerary after learning a bit more about the best way to attack the passes in the latter half – information I got courtesy of Ray at the JMT Book blog, here. You may also notice that the first 2 days have alternates built-in to my itinerary.
As Jeff over at socalhiker.com says:
Plan, but allow flexibility.
See you on the trail!
