John Muir Trail Map

The Big Decision

I've talked about it for years and now I've made the decision. It's time for me to do the JMT as a through hike. Previously I have done the JMT in segments spread over 20 years with my best friend. We finished the trail in 2003 and did a couple of 50 mile hikes in the Yosemite high country before he moved to New Zealand in 2006. Next year my plan is to hike the JMT southbound starting in mid July and taking 21-22 days. I currently have no one to hike with and am looking to join up with someone. My dates are flexible as I am retired. I'm looking for someone more for mutual support than companionship. I plan on taking a fair amount of time doing photography and maybe we would just meet up at mutually agreed camp sites. In the meantime I'm working on reducing my pack weight and getting in shape.
