Ronnie, I registered through mailing group and PCTA have some information in the PCT. There are mainly matters of equipment doesn't really speak to me but decided it was time to get some information.

Just a question for those who know, I realize that the hardest part is the Sierra Nevada, how long it takes to get to the trailhead for the Sierra Nevada (for example in some walk an average +)?

Ronnie and Michal,

I bought today from Amazon the DATABOOK and three books of Southern California, Northern California and Oregon, and is concerned, ...

Do you think these are the books I need, I need more books?

(Yogi's message forum on Yahoo, these numbers must take her words).

If I remember right, the numbers only to Canadian DOS is 700 miles (easy!). Place 50 miles before Forrester and the last picture box point before Sierra so that lots of people hanging out there a day or two before they continue depends on how much snow before. (This year the place up for sale so it can vary).  Do the math of how long you accordingly. In addition you might want to climb Mount Whitney (4.5 km altitude is the highest mountain in the u.s. mainland, and in one case the easiest mountains above 14000 feet, and quite good).  You can buy a permit to climb it at kickoff.  It will cost you $ 15 and another walk.

Don't need anything (even from the DATA BOOK) that the guides for so good. The Yogi book itself has a great track with an updated listing of tispok points, but I'm pretty sure you can buy it at kickoff (Yogi makes for again this year), and if not I'm sure you can take pages from other travellers.

Now all you need is to plan where you are sending the track (no worries, post offices have exactly two seam of California and Oregon this).  I intend to buy the books for the orbit (the guides 2003 torn and discarded while walking)

Wasn't some point where you plan to do?

By the way, was a ' values here in the Forum (?) of Ireland. Perhaps you could write something about it.

Ronnie saw in PCT-L people received Permit to hike the PCT.

Do I need to obtain permission and nobody bothered to let me know?

In addition, even the Bear Box (also in the message you left now). Necessary or not, and if so where?

All you have to do the PCT is one certificate that covers everything.  You can get it free at kickoff (or at least you could get it for free in 2003). In 2003 didn't test me once the certificate, nor in 2005 in Washington d.c. (not really was me) actually don't really need it anywhere except aseira and especially in Yosemite, where inspectors really mean.    If you take the confirmation kickoff, that's what I intend to do.  If you are unable to get the certificate you can be smart. As each team given Greece approval group head only supposed to carry it, you basically can take someone else's certificate, and take the certificate with you, and that your photo certificate.  Can work (my backup).  Anyway, that Greece would be a stream of moves, the Rangers usually far less testing, because they can identify remote THRUHIKER (old.)

About the BEAR BOX, this is the kind of hot topics, but you can actually do without (which is what I do) If you make sure to sleep every day instead of bear box instead.  This again is only valid in the Sierra and Yosemite where black bears are aggressive, maybe the best in the world. Carry boxes weighing a lot, can't contain more than a few days of eating big are a real pain in the ass. Anywhere other than the amazing vo of the Yosemite bears like apalch.

In short, you can take care of everything in kickoff (sell bear boxes there if you really want to take unnecessary and expensive two pounds).  At least I think.  Check in Google about PCT may PERMIT and find updated information (and write here, I also want to be sure).

All the certificates etc. in my desire for PCTL is due to choose an alternative way of Sierra, to see the giant redwood trees (but not large to huge) and the lower Valley in Yosemite. But places that Erawan is never had.  If I leave the PCT I should probably take care of proper permits and it has been a headache (and skip about it).

Oh and I forgot to put the link to the Yogi's update:

Http://www.pcthandbook.com/uploads/PCT%20update%20Feb%202007.pdf

I'm pretty sure you can buy the book at kickoff that Yogi makes for again.  (I'm cheap to buy it)

In relation to the relevant page. certificates:

See about entering Canada with a tank and Miko-I guess they check it.  There shouldn't be anyone to check when you log on to Canada (this is really in the middle of nowhere), but when you get back to the States from Canada without approval from akandim may throw you off (I have heard of someone this happened!) and you may not be able to enter the United States legally.

I still plan, but don't know which.
Wasn't some point where you did this for Ah. There were a lot of them.

I really don't know about ages in PCT. For most Israelis there (this is usually in 1-2 years) heard rumors.

The moves on the PCT are on average older than a few years because of the apalch of apalch graduates.  There are more people on the road between 1950s (early retirement) than in the age of 30 (when most people are busy building a career and family). There are also quite a lot of people in their 60s and one or two in their 70s.

When would you like to do?

Yes, Amtrak did for (Israel) two years ago. And the PCT might do when I retired it's not far. Just all the parts in the machine runs fine and come out.

Ronnie, I got the numbers, and now I'm really confused.

The data "didn't match-Bok, contrary to what you write, I think number debits. He doesn't weigh much at all, and gives you everything you need to know about for a concise way. My experience with aplatim, I don't really see how it is possible to travel without him.

On the other hand.... The official numbers. What is this?! If the number falls to you accidentally click the dead instead! Each book weighs some pounds.

I think what I'm going to do is take the data "didn't match-book me and the book of Yogi I take my relevant pages-it came in a binder so it doesn't create a problem with my absolute resistance to tearing pages out of a book.

Based on your experience, do you?

The data book is if you take the official guides because they contain all the information even if not succinctly. Unlike you apalch want to take maps to the PCT.  As a reminder, the PCT is not marked as Appalachia all fathoms, but only some of the nodes and the occasional tree.  Some people managed to make the data for the book, but it's only by having you look at btzmtim and follow my footprints in the dirt on the shoes for (you pretty quickly learn to identify the people in front of you by a shoe).  Can you guess the problem by.  In addition, there are segments, especially in the beginning, or the Mojave Desert, where you want to go at night, then you won't be able to see the following. In short, the kind of essential PCT and therefore better take for school unless you all along with other people. Also the track descriptions help you in those places with the map.  At the time, tore two of the first three books when I went to save weight, though easier to read a few pages than any number of walking, and I haven't seen reason to send the book after I read it. I felt bad about tearing the book, but it was quite necessary.

What you need to do is send in the two other books.  Fortunately there's a post office (where you can also buy the Guide) exactly in the seam of California, so if you ask your friend to send him there (for a DOS tolomani) you don't need to take him all the way.

Dear Emir,
It might take some time but eventually break and tear the book!!!
As Rooney said: absolutely necessary maps + the DATA BOOK is very convenient if not necessary.
Yogi is great and really really important (and save a lot of money)
Yogi in chapters so that it indicates what what DATA and what GUIDE BOOK, and where to send each chapter.

12 April.

Company won't help anything. Even if I have to take 5 pounds. I'm not busting number. Point. Just not capable. (Very dark, too, but I just couldn't.)

Why Yogi saves money?

Okay, Ronny Michal and Ma, don't kill me, but ....

I have a CANON SLR camera, and I'm very, very pleased, but to take her with me.

Of course, it is about something very heavy (from 600 grams to kilograms, depending on the lens).

My question is simple, you see hikers with SLR camera, or I'm going to be like seeing pink elephants on the PCT?

Met travellers on the road, even ultra extreme Leitrim, carrying three pounds of camera and even more. Some even carried a small tripod. If you are willing to take the extra weight, so me not hear mockery. it gives me the option "ל"גנוב your pictures.

However, many times I've seen people with six professional cameras, lost a lot of animals, because until they are sufficient to adjust the camera, also lives.  Also, I found that with my camera, the water sealing, Pantex can I take pictures in more modes, because I'm not afraid of the camera get wet.  From my limited experience, the difference in quality between the photographs, pocket camera, auto and semi professional cameras, is not that big.  With the digital pocket camera just taking a lot more pictures and quit the less successful photos.
