Water is Section F is pretty dicey this year. As a section hiker I am beginning to have second thoughts about my June 1 hike from Tehachepi Pass to Kennedy Meadows. I may just do some AT this year.
I am comfortable with 20+ miles of dry, but 35+ worries me. I will be very lightweight, but this is hot and dry trail.
Robin Bird is questionable now, any word on that??
That would leave Landers as the next source. Not much futher but 35+ miles. Any word on the Landers area yet? Could those sources be dry too??
Maybe the plumbing at Golden Oak will get fixed!
In reading some journals, I see allot of pumping from "crappy" sources, such as seeps and pools. I have been an iodine guy. What has been your success with digging holes, scooping, and using iodine? Palatable or just too yucky. I sound like my daughter!
Advice and caches are appreciated!
