Hi everyone last finished nine days of an amazing journey on the JMT FILMS DISTRIBUTION in the wild section of the trail.

We started at BISHOP and finished at whitney portal, as 150קמ with a 6.5 km of climbing. In this section, you must be based on delivery. Organize your trip requires much more planning and tinkering for food planning, pramit understanding local regulations, logistics of getting to the track and back, everything is amazing and powerful place truly special voyage. Don't let the track direct written hundreds of articles on various sites, but of what has been written is important to me to mention a few highlights to Israeli society who plan to do the trail in its entirety or in part:

1. weight, weight and weight. Due to the number of days you are required to accept the Rabbi in the backpack + store food in bear protection reach weights of unlikely 23-24 kg, the weight of the backpack in the level of enjoyment of the trip, the distance and the accumulated fatigue, could significantly reduce the weight by a calculation of what you really need to try to get the longest section of 9ימים without 16קג more supplies before the water.

2. local laws and regulations, most Israelis tend to disregard local regulation and cutting corners, there are several reasons why not to do it.

1. we place guests and must respect the House rules that were created after many years of local experience

2. after thousands of travelling the route as a whole including the car parks is maintained at a level we haven't seen amazing cigarette wrapping paper or paper towels, end all save and clear at the highest level that can be simply amazing.
It is important to note that throughout the track nor seen anyone monitor or other official representative

3. the regulations and rules that keep life regarding carefully because bears or just an insurance policy in case they needed rescue, travelling with rescue coverage pramit mossek.

3-GPS & maps, basically the track is very difficult to mess around but have map for planning and orientation, there are also application to tzoinit portable that costs a few dollars to help navigate and especially illustrates graphically the heights including score.
Map recommended –

John Muir Trail Map-Pack Shaded Relief Topo Maps: (Tom Harrison Maps)

4 – emergency contact, we rented a satellite phone $ 70 not including calls, I think worth the peace of mind and to emergency situations. Nothing like calling home from J-band

5 – water, all our sources seemed very clean but mainly because the fear from GIARDIA I personally recommend Pelter, we use lightweight filter generated by clean water efforts relatively easy: Sawyer Water Filtration System

6 – along the way we did above old section 3000מטר, the temperature reaches the zero-degree zone recommends shcsh and mattress respectively

7. altitude sickness on day one, planned to cross the bar 4000מטר elevation, not very smart indeed had to sleep before the bar due to weakness and dizziness, all the tracks on the way over 4000מטר, you should acclimate before and/or take pills.

[Quote = ido8; 589669], what about the drought, fires that had?

In the northern part of the route was a difficult problem of smoke that caused some people to leave after two or three days and led to many cancellations

In the section that we suffered one day smoke on the second day of the kings canyon area was really a catastrophe as pressing and completely block breathing, luckily it started to rain on the second day at night I cleaned the smoke and third day onwards there was no problem.
Drought-affected rivers and Lakes height but not beyond that, there is no doubt that low level also facilitate crossing

The burnings occurred far off the trail (hundreds square kilometres), the effect is evident only in smoke clouds caught in the Mall and blocked the view and ask about, so there is no issue of rebuilding the area.

A reporter not to extend the runway. We certainly don't oppose you list.
For example: walking experiences, how you came to Bishop and went out from Whitney Portal, how many people were in the group, are met many people on the trail, etc.
And of course we'd love some photos (or if you have a link to the online album) from the striking views of the trail.
