Hello
Following is a summary of the JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION that went in September 2012.
Started in Yosemite Valley in 5.9.12 total 20 days + the day of rest. No Half Dome
I started a year ago on a Trek had to collect material from different places on the network because it's a complex little trek than I guess most readers used to try to give a general information that will be detailed enough, I hope a good base for anyone who wants to go.

Directory:

I purchased the two common guides for CICERONE – THE JOHN MUIR TRAIL and
JOHN MUIR TRAIL-THE ESSENTIAL GUIDE ... ELIZABETH WENK's I chose finally to take the guide of CICERONE from aim and found him more focused in addition is also easy and small.
The most significant advantage that he divides the trek to structured sections and 21 in this regard is "think" for the traveler how to plan your trip and put it into the context of and opposed the other divides large sections 13 to trek and indeed provides a wealth of information about places to stay but makes you spend more time planning. Personally I was more comfortable to let the author of friendly lead me. The choice proved to be a good spokesman for the guide provides all the information needed.
The disadvantage is that the rate of 21 days can be too fast for some people along the Trek is 360 km if doing one rest day then this is an average rate of approximately 18 miles a day, it's just not worth Division, has 15 km and 25 km.
The best combination in my opinion is take from Elizabeth and Monk week list of recommended places to stay (who has the guide can get to the site).
However this is not necessary and can do fine without the list (taking) aimed at the parkim Trek along national are allowed by default to sleep where you want unless otherwise noted (unlike annoying why us authorities imposing nature) as well as at any point up to an altitude of 11,000 feet allowed to light a bonfire, and signs indicate that this means that if you aren't enough to get to the place where you want to store a night nice spot to find along the way and to establish there a tent and light a bonfire.
In addition take the collection for MAP PACK called to mind.

Pramit:

Need to get PERMIT from the WILDERNESS of http://www.nps.gov/yose/index.htm
Pramit's stuffed with computerized and need to fax it to us when filling in the details should select Park date and the end date and the first Turk and the exit point.
The site lists the possible TrailHeads (so they call it) and available dates. The official starting point and to start the Trek is in Yosemite Valley.
The exit point is the Whitney Portal 18 km Trek's official end on
Mt. Whitney
The insertion point or the accommodations for the first night is the problem and should be booked as far in advance as possible (24 weeks) the price is $ 10 I believe.
Apramit. can you Yosemite Park but he is grabbing all the trip when through cross two national parks, Yosemite and that is one of the most popular parks in the USA you are competing for places not only against those who wish to go to JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION but anyone who seeks to do overnight or around the Park. What the problem is worsening as the classic spot to sleep the first night in Little Yosemite Valley that it is also the most comfortable night for those wishing to climb to Half Dome.

There are several ways to overcome the problem:
The first is to take the option of Happy Isles-has a lot of Illilouette > less pressure means that you start the walk at the starting point of the Trek and spending the first night in a place called ILLOUETTE which is about 5 km from the main road link to the Chechnya http://groups.yahoo.com/...nmuirtrail/message/21679 map
The link to the map is the first post in the link
I mean you're extending your hike at 10 km, you can add another night I took this option but the day before the Trek should arrive at the Wilderness Center's Office and take the physical and they replaced my first night at little Yosemite Valley because a spot.
Another option is to go to Yosemite Valley early in the morning and how open the Office to try to get some, they keep pramit than people who come without an invitation in advance means that stress probably won't be the only ones who choose this option.
Another option is to shorten the Trek between birth days to start the fourth day of a friendly guide to a place called at tuolomne meadows is great its interoperable safety-campsite with Highway and public transport have Trek.
The main disadvantage of this option you are giving up on the possibility of the Half Dome climbing but also has advantages: short Trek in 3 days and skip the part of the refuge Prati quarter travel there together with another million Americans wearing baseball hats and hand-drawn PDAs also consider you save approximately 20% of the cumulative and inclines in a lot of them (almost 9 miles) about the loss indeed beautiful scenery, in the early days but he is improving as a trek.
The form can fill three options in order of preference of places or dates because there is no limit on check point date yourself extra time.
Who receives Permit automatically entitled to receive Wilderness also Permit to the Half Dome climbing for about $ 5 (ask the one who physically assembled the Permit)

Getting to the Park:

The easiest way is from San Francisco.                      On company sells its website at 40 $ combination ticket of bus-train-bus from different locations in the city to Yosemite Valley that Park Center in the Valley there is a free bus that runs a circular route between all the important points, there are plenty of restaurants, travel equipment equal with totally affordable (balon) the first night you will be asked to sleep in the parking lot overnight Campground that so-called pastoral Backpackers is a short walk from the accommodation bus station should cost $ 5.
San Francisco slept the night before in a charming hostel called Fisherman Wharf hostel that mmcomm above the Bay. This is a convenient way to save money for those who need to settle in San Francisco has a store of REI.
Equipment:

Here I made the first big mistake came out, if 70 liters of GREGORY, but very heavy weight. I was considering the case at the airport in New York before flying to San Francisco is 23 kg weight and before (for those who want to laugh at me, now is the time!)
After the first day, I realized that this weight finished the Trek on a skid. I started throwing things and some equipment sent back to family in the New York post there on the third day of the trek to tchnseti 17-18 kg also.
I didn't know the Trek concept of the Ultra light Backpacks and I'm not a great expert on the subject, my tip for anyone who comes to trek alone to read material on the subject. There's some Forum experts and much more in this Web sites to keep 2 rules:
1. you think bag packing in ounces rather than pounds say we see the world through the glasses we then put over us reflect who see grams and the case went much easier.
2. do not take more than a luxury accessory 1 max 2 spoiled among Luxury accessory is not necessary for all your survival, comfort or likely to basic emergency supplies (medication, band-AIDS).
Of course, those who can afford to purchase it equipment ultra Lite best mode. In this case the file + food and equipment should שקול10 11 kg which is a completely different world in terms of the experience of the trip.
Scarpa Kailash GTX shoes: great shoe just don't fit on this trip. Trekking shoes easily found low or better area Sprint shoes much more convenient and easy bag easier in terms of weight and volume of the socks.
Bear Canister: the great http://www.bearvault.com/500 light box transparent and open argument.
Water Purifier: HEPA http://www.sawyer.com/great, comfortable and connects to different types of bottles.
The blowtorch: standard large relief should be at least 12 days per person.
Tip: some COMPEED plasters called actually a whole family of band-AIDS of various sizes placed them on her bladder and leaving for a few days and she takes in the fluid of the bladder and suppresses it. We strongly recommend that you take a few Trek. Have obtained.

Bears:

Throughout most of the trek that black bears have the smallest type 3 that are common in North America. Not to disparage the subject. This is a sweet chick in weight of an African lion. The talk triggered fear in the beginning and first nights all noise bouncing my way The bottom line is if you make the rules as specified in the Guide and Ranger guide shouldn't be the only problems that trouble on this trip a guy who ate a hot meal in the dark while leaving the food in the bag instead of a box and a bear and his case. It is important to remember that this is a rare case and the person is not part of the menu of the bear if he gets especially for your food is not for you.

Weather:

Sierra Nevada Mountains are convenient places for excursions, weather wise Ridge considered the chain of desert mountains isn't the least rainy most days with blue sky. I traveled as stated in September and the weather was comfortable. On a hot day 27-30 degrees and a cold night just over ה0.
I realized that in September there sometimes thunderstorms that short system accompanied by lots of rain as well as not uncommon that first snow comes already that I never saw any of them.
Another advantage in September and not unlike many people either, only ten people gathered who did all the JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION and a number of those who did part of it.

Food:

Here I made the mistake the second big trip didn't take enough food for the second part of the trip for the Trek is divided into 2 days first part 1, 3, 6, 9, has met with many restaurants and shops where you can stock up on food, so it's worth in this part of the trip in small enough quantities to the next point.
Ninth day can deviate slightly from the trek to get to Vally Resort or Vermilion V V R
VVR is somewhere remote Camping Resort on Lake Edison is the name day of rest. There is hot water, washing machine, you can obtain course restaurant food and very nice staff. It's also a good place to meet other travellers scents at night sitting together around the campfire with beer.
You can also send food package if I recall it was gather costs regardless of shipping 18$ has details on their website. The main disadvantage is that over the past few years Lake Addison tends to dry early in the season.
Normally come with the path to the Lake and the boat there and back 16$ farm set in the time I got there the Lake was half dry for quite some time and this causes the elongation rate through at approximately 6 km. Another thing that drags who plans on September they close earlier because a minority of travelers in 2012 they closed at 17.9 all facilities except the option to receive a package but in this case it's worth has been sending the food package to the MUIR TRAIL RANCH to arrive on day 12 without straying from the trail is small, intimate and secluded parcel collection away costs $ 50 has a small shop with basic equipment band-AIDS Batteries without food can stock up on some food left on them than other travelers.
The summary says that from now on the 9th or 12th who sent a package to the MUIR TRAIL RANCH cannot provide food, what you have is all you eat to Whitney portal, straying from the trail in order to obtain food is not realistic because ranch right after entering the muir wilderness Trek and beautiful where hard to get on foot, it takes a day and a half to get to some Godforsaken road/path from which you should take a ride to some small town and then all the way back.
The second point worth noticing that as noted in days 1, 3, 6, 9 restaurants and you will strengthen your body in many calories (on the first day before starting the walk from best to eat breakfast in the Valley, there's serving an all-you-can-eat buffet restaurant at twelve dollars,) the second part is a more physical challenge with mountain passes higher and more frequent. Your caloric intake Canal and the strengthening of, another good reason to reduce weight carry bag less kg = less calories intake.
And here is the place to mention that the amount of food that will take you to the size of the Bear Canister you are supposed to put the toiletry and pharmaceutical products. The restrictions require the right design for those not accustomed to that kind of trip.
In terms of the type of food I got beyond the standard stuff and some energy bars in the u.s. who don't know a company called MOUNTAIN HOUSE that produces food for backpackers, this is a delicious and nutritious food that mixes it with boiling water and wait כ9 min and a good hot meal package costs about $ has deals. It's several degrees above what we know of any hot dishes of all kinds. Several packages have flavors and sizes they specify package of 125 g of this meal two people, that's an exaggeration, think the 125 g as to a major meal per person per day. What I want to do is concentrate the applicability of several bags in a plastic bag with a good bracket, so you save weight and can fit on a Bear Canister large amount of aluminum bags that came. Quick upward even if every night you will have 150 lives of dual dry mix 11 days from the total weight is VVR 1650 GR 11 is not bad for hot meals.

End point the Trek at LONE PINE:

The site is the closest place for graduation at the Whitney Portal store and got Whitney is where look at RTE after long days in the wild and are taken to lift LONE PINE which is a sleepy little street after long days in the wild must tidema on to your eye as the cache. Finally a hot shower, super market, restaurants and Naomi civilization (I didn't realize I was coming to the point where I'd like to see McDonald's branch).
Accommodation: slept at Whitney Portal Hostel beautiful new place, clean and cheap, there's plenty of options in town mostly lying.
Getting around: major bus companies don't come to town, there is a local company that releases small buses numbered days to point South (l.a) and even pointed North (Reno, Nevada).
There is a direct bus to l. a. the easiest way to get there is to take a bus (about $ 40) to the city named lancaster where the bus drops you off at the train station and from there a train to Los Angeles.
In l.a slept overnight in usa hostel in a nice place and good for those looking to spend a night at an affordable price.

A few personal words to summarize:

This trek in my heart deeper than the others, a very beautiful place, but it's far from the whole story. There are no less impressive, Sierra Nevada range cannot compete in the Andean Mountain meeting. of the Himalayas. Classic postcard views of snow, forest, Lake expressed more figuratively/New Zealand/North Alps.
But even after all this I found on another Magic Magic JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION which I couldn't explain exactly, maybe it's the combination of a trek with a rugged tent on my back but in terms of the weather, along with American standards at their best, for very obvious with signs where needed and maintained at a high level. More than once I found myself standing at the foot of the mountain pass that seemed insurmountable and thinking where the hell to you start to climb, you find a great quality in a way that is not bruised.
I know this is a very subjective experience of trekking across the landscape is in the eye of the beholder, too, have the physical and mental state with whom we come, the weather, the people we meet and more.

Therefore, anyone who thinks ... Deciding if ... Yes it is far more complex, requiring planning and dealing with annoying topsologia but is guaranteed a huge experience, one that will remain for life. Who knows maybe you will find more accurate words to describe the charm of many so go sit down.

Good luck!

NIR,
Many thanks for the interesting, useful, enjoyable and exciting. Your summary do fancy and relaxing and helpful and fun to shchmveni (and I'm sure others) read
I dreamers beds on this trek. It is not yet matured with by but I already believe that someday it really happens!
I hope you feel like at the end of the Trek (Incidentally, I think you managed to deliver very good feeling even if you still don't know how to explain it exactly). I can't promise you I could understand exactly the secret magic-or to find the words to explain. But I promise to try!
If only a small request (after ahamati). How to add a picture or two? 41479.5182291667 io_travel

I think if anything the most simple-put them somewhere (piksha/Facebook) to import the image from there (click the icon of a tree without the arrow, and insert the address of the image)

Another simple option is to shrink the image with Microsoft Office Picture Manager-that should be on every Windows computer.

Make a copy of the image, then open it with the software right menu (Getting Started Task Pane or if it does not appear you found-menu picture above):
Edit-> Compress picture picture-> web pages
Or any other size you think you are suitable for the following name (she writes to you what is expected to be the file size).

Good luck

Hi there,
Thank you for your replies,
I went for the post of water and off-this paper helps.

What about tent? Did you have about the bears?
If I buy a tent I want to invest in a good one to have for a few years, I am looking for a tent, a lightweight who can adapt to extreme conditions than either waiting for me, I am setting the ceiling of 300-350 dollars but if you have recommendations for cheaper is also great.
Where is the cheapest to buy equipment in the USA? REI or to buy online and send to address? I'll be on the East coast at the beginning (Boston and New York City and San Francisco before trip)

Sleeping bag 0-comfort is good for? Deciding whether to buy myself a rue to borrow can borrow one pound (served me faithfully in the Israel National Trail (INT) in November)

And one last question-is there anywhere to leave San Francisco with surplus (books, toiletries and other luxuries that don't want to carry on your back)?

Saturday pay

Hello Jason,
-Tent because of the bears, but you do need some kind of shelter against the rain.
Tent has plenty of options to check in http://www.outdoorgearlab.com/
There is a comprehensive test.
-Purchase of equipment: it varies depending on the deals in Manhattan except REI has at least two good shops: eastern mountain sport and sport in paragon plus Amazon has a large selection of equipment and a good price for all the 3 sites, compare.
-A sleeping bag in good condition (still functioning as 0) some borderline with no tent tent have some cold nights sleeping at an altitude of approximately 3 km
-The hostels you can gear it is advisable to book in advance and so you can make contact to ensure that you can check on accommodation among others here http://www.hostelworld.com/

Thank you...
There's a bargain in San Francisco?

Another thing-ACN, I realized there was a button that lets you update every day where you are and when you clicked a distress call.

Hi there,
I plan to do five days on the JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION thought to enter from BISHOP pass PASS PASS in BISHOP, KEARSARGE, FORESTER PASS, climb Whitney portal and hooitani.
We are two brothers in the 2020s, and fit experience.
What you say is pretentious.
If so, where would you recommend? Assuming we want to climb Whitney.
Thank you!
Does anyone have recommendations for logistics services? (We are a rental car) where best to shop at the beginning or at the end? In town or at the beginning of the track?

First, and most importantly: Live No Trace It's a first for everything else you can't leave any kind of waste (food, toilet paper, plastic bags, etc.)

Here is the link to the height and distance of the path. Look it over and distances you should go (zoom the image)

Http://www.pcta.org/wp-content/uploads/2010/JMTelevationprofile.jpg

Also I think your plan to get to from Bishop Pass Longer than five days.

There's 11 miles up the trail and then another about84 miles to Whitney Portal, so time is not reasonable-unless you can extend.

My suggestion is that you come from. Mexico From there you enter fromKearsarge Passwalking up the path itself takes about9 miles in great views, and in fact it might be considered as part of the trip rather than walking the distance management that includes up to Whitney Portal to be 55 mph which is certainly reasonable.

You need to consider the fact that if you reach for on September 20th, so there are likely to be snow on the trail or down during the walk.

What about equipment: tent, clothing, cooking, walking poles and all the other things necessary?

Private message I left you contact me if you want.
