    Great response Tim. That was still an amazing feat by Andrew. OK, it's the FKT with phone battery stash and a hiking partner.

    Congrats Sanbu! You prove that it's not just about peakbagging but it's also about the people we meet on our journey to the peaks. And it's not a race either.

    It took me 35 years from 1976 to 2011...

    Nice report and this is still on my to do list since 1979. A Patriots fan would have tried to flattened the terrain to get an advantage.

    Don't be spooked by the swamp plank bridge but its as dry now as it will get. I'd go that way. The bushwhack from Gray to Marcy is effectively "closed" but isn't worth the costs anyway, both time...

    That's cool! Backpacker Magazine recently had an article about a Big Island traverse hike, it would be perfect to finish on. From Kilauea volcano across Mauna Kea summit to the Waipio Valley.

    Congratulations to both of you! I know the feeling in your knees descending from Jackson because I did that too but it made me feel like I completeed the full traverse. Pemi Loop next year?

    As an alternative I recommend Wright and Algonquin (~10mi) on Saturday. Sunday you could easily do Cascade and Porter (~6mi) in the morning. Now you'll have 5/46.

    I agree and it appears that the USFS will actually perform the washout repair work. Out of curiosity, I downloaded the drawings. It appears that the contracted scope of work includes gravel trail...
