Well, if you do the big loop as a day trip, I'm interested. I'm still not a backpacker... that would cost me too many husband points.
BTW, have you done Elephant/Six-Pack peaks (7)? I realize it is way too early to plan for next year, but since you're retired, you have some flexibility
I think Tom Rankin is interested as well. I'd like to go with 1-3 other people, candidate #3 would also be Bob Hayes... At the moment I would be staying in a motel, not camping, but I might be talked into camping.
