We'll see you there. Going in Saturday afternoon for a warmup hike via May Lake, down to Glen Aulin to check out the falls, up to Young Lakes, out Dog Lake. I'll be the guy named Phil that smells like DEET. We can do lunch.

LOL :lol: Well, you might be a tough one to pick out of the crowd smelling like Deet. I am trying Natrapel to see what it is like, got great reviews on Amazon. I would like to find something that is not so greasy. However, my partner in crime is bringing Deet
Sunday we take the backdoor down and stay past GA, usually arrive around 2 - 3PM at the camp site, Monday head down to LeConte and spend the day screwing around on the river, Tuesday out.
Sunday I will be the guy wearing an obnoxious Lime Green shirt with the word Treadmill on it. Would be a blast to hook up.

Wasn't too impressed with the Natrapel at the store. It was greasy and smelled just so-so. Too lemony, but not in a pleasant way. Ended up going with the Repel Max 40%. The most tolerable of necessary evils.

That would be a blast. We'll keep and eye out for you.
