I have a hearing which lasted over 3 years with Bert about the water issue. I assume that the discussion continues there will be more years until water wipe solutions everywhere.

They said that in 2016 are places with water like top up me. Hope it will. Our remote locations like Ms. Conn didn't simply put

Michal, but relatively easy solution: shovel alone, wages or carrying water for two days (the total in four).

===========================================

The PCTA website has an interesting article about water. The final paragraph:

"A key piece of this work over time will be to continue to educate hikers and riders. The PCT is a wilderness trail. To do it, you need to be physically fit, well prepared and self-sufficient. Not all sections are suitable for all people. To get water from sources reliable and faster, you need to go into town l or off trail. Never rely on water caches. This is one of the ways in which we preserve the wild character of the PCT. "

Two questions:

If you don't rely on the landfills water in PCT, especially in Southern California, what maximum distance hiker goes without potable water source?

How much water should carry the longest stretch without water, to get safely to the water source.

Moved on the Halfmile's App to see where there are Water Alerts site these three long segments:

Southern California

558-25.1-kilometer road to טהאצ'אפי/mohabi Golden Oak Spring. The main problem is that spring isn't very reliable, then this section might be even longer.

Northern California

1375-29.4 mile-long long March (usually hot) on Hat Creek Rim. Very revealing, and no water sources. Usually there are caches in the middle (. 2)

Oregon

1820 – length of 26.2-alternative route along Lake Rim Crater (not the official PCT).

There are a few sections with less than 20 miles (it's not really a problem usually).

Overall, the majority of these are mkaes distances of day. So can fill 5-6 liters of water, and hit the road. I think there are 558 email section in the middle of somewhere I can go to the offices of wind farms. So it might add a little, but it's a reliable water source. The Hat Creek Rim wasn't great on a hot day, without a lot of water. It's better to do it in the evening/night (for there are very easy, not hot). Crater Lake-and need to carry some. But there the trail is not difficult.

I don't think there is a section on the PCT required a two-lift of water (~ 50 miles without any water source, possible road out to somewhere is sitting). So this Bill in Israel will be harder.

Regarding your last question-is of course a very personal and depends on the shape and pace of each, and the amount of water that is needed. At some point on the path, I think that * I * got close to 10 miles on a gallon of water, a path not difficult, hot day and I had to reach a water source away. I think most visitors cut loose with 2 liters of water on me, if I knew that water availability later in the day.

Could be interesting to know what do travelers on where I think CDT desert is a desert ". I think in New Mexico has several wells that run on wind energy, the trail goes through them. Without them, the situation there would have been quite difficult.

I plan to make the PCT and I'd be happy if someone has to be able to give me information on issues such as arrangements for food/water every couple coming to cities and more

Hello Ben. You seem to burst the door open. You are welcome to read the thread and this complicated monster, you won't find it on your arms and legs, to ask specific questions, and we will be happy to answer you.
You also can set PCT in Hebrew on Facebook, if you prefer to ask questions there.

Hello

Sharpen my question because I couldn't find an answer in previous messages.

I realized that the first ה700 talks and some people there water laid, do you know you can rely on? Or you need to set in advance? (I planned to leave at the end of April)

Do you also have a need to store the Sierras or reachable, and if so what is involved?

Thanks to all that help and those who don't)

The water situation in Southern California is usually really more complicated than others, and therefore the PCTWatersite, which maintains up-to-date information on water resources. The easiest way to stay informed while marching, in my opinion, is to use the Google Drive to add the file to, and mark it as offline file. That way, every time you're at a place with WiFi signal, you can update the data on your phone. And before each section, you can take a look and see what the water situation in the coming days. About-atmanot, try to reduce reliance on the atmanot, and in most places there are alternatives that require a short walk, or catching a ride somewhere or just carrying a little more water. However, Weeps for all kinds of dried sections especially, have the landfills in places. Just get up to speed on the Water Report.

I don't think many people shovel water for themselves. When we talk about water caches, usually going into some closet full of water bottles, which is near a dirt road and usually some Angel Bill worries to maintain and full during the season.

Not need to plant food. The Sierra can be divided in many ways. The "hard" way is to exit KM (702 miles) to Mammoth (miles) in one section. It takes about 10-11 days to most people. I did it in two and a half sections were still not easy (to me).

From KM to Lake Trail Bullfrog (788 miles)-7 days, including one day of rising and descending on Mount Whitney (alongside the trail), and more about eight miles on a side trail to campsite, where we took a ride to Lone Pine (from the same place to travel to Mexico or Bishop)

From Lone Pine to Vermilion Valley Resort (mile 878)-7 days until the bridge next to it (still 2 miles walk) to get on the Lake is VVR (resort can bring him some, and send a package, price a little expensive)

From Mammoth to VVR (mile 914)-2 days-short and relatively buoyant section

But there are many more options, and different places you can get them to Lone Pine, Bishop, or Mexico, you can send the package to the Muir Trail Ranch (VVR Mammoth opening dates to some problematic)

I recommend you to read blogs of people who did that to meet and try to use the Halfmile App (version to be updated in the coming weeks), interested and close on your equipment (although some don't close, things will change during the path), the PCTA website for the certificates you need to (I think Long Distance Permit applications to open in February).

A few more questions.

Is there an option to make the trip without sending packages?

What exactly gives the Long Distance approval Permit and what other credentials?

You can read about the certificates link. In principle, the long distance permit allows you not to mess with local credentials when you go through all sorts of parks along the path (otherwise you will have to request and carry separate certificates for each Park, and always get the dates that you want). Canada entrance certificate will allow you to enter Canada without borders criticized station, which mostly help when you want to leave Canada in an orderly manner, and you will have a signature on the Passport you entered her. California fire certificate will allow you to fire (gas burner/nzinia/questions) in California, without worrying that you'll get fined monitors that do not have this permission.

It is possible to make the trip without sending packages. Some people do it. In Oregon and Washington that would be a little harder. Also in the Sierra. But to send yourself this isn't complicated packages. You can read about what I did with my parcels along the trail here.
