Good morning everyone.
I plan on hiking the cdt 2015, my question is about water north of silver
city.  One stretch is a possible 50 miles.  I would like to be able to
carry my water.

So I just checked my notes at Hat creek rim. PCT   I carried 5 quart for
the 30 miles. But and a big But.. Mile 22 had a cashe.  There was poor
quality and I used 2 quarts  thus.. 7 quarts to 30 miles thus...

.23 q per mile in the hot sun
So I would need .23 X 50= 11.65 quarts. For 50 miles.  That's 2.91 gallons
or 24.25 pounds of water at 8.34 pounds per gallon

Does this sound reasonable?  To those of you who have hiked the trail?
