Hi Sherri,

I too am planning a 2011 thru attempt solo.... congrats to you for following 
your dream next year! At first I was nervous about heading out there alone, but 
this year I went to the ADZPCTKO event to help get rid of some butterflies and 
within hours knew that there would be absolutely no problem finding MANY 
wonderful, friendly, helpful folks to journey with. A few weeks ago I spent the 
weekend with hikers at Sonora Pass (approx 1000 miles into the trail) and the 29 
amazing hikers I spent time with during those two days only further reassured me 
that if I wanted to hike with others next year I would have tons of 
opportunities to meet new friends to hike with. Some of these hikers were still 
with groups they met on day 2 of the trail while others were leap frogging each 
other and spending time with different people along the way. I was amazed at how 
many hikers were so close to one another past the 1000 mile point (I met 29 thru 
hikers within a 1 1/2 day period and there were still many in town that I didn't 
get the chance to meet).

For all of the many reasons listed by others in previous posts I have decided 
not to commit myself in advance to hiking with any one person, but I am 100% 
confident I will have the chance to hike with tons of fun people along the way. 
I look forward to meeting you (and your pup) out there as well!!

Happy Hiking!

Hi, My name is Sherri and I am new to the forum. I am planning a thru hike for 
2011. It's something I've wanted to do for years. At this point I am going alone 
with my dog. (I don't need criticism about the dog. I am very educated about 
animals and promise to do right by my boy.) I don't know a sole with the will or 
means to join me so I'm wondering if anyone else is looking for a trail mate.  I 
have most of my gear and would be willing to share what I can. I also have 
someone committed to sending resupply boxes and several resources in the so-cal 
sections and a few by lake Tahoe. Any and all suggestions would be great. Sherri
