This weekend, I'm about to embark on an Eastern Sierra backpack trip. Ordinarily, this isn't a real big deal, but considering that I haven't done an overnight backpack in about 5 years (about the time when we started going crazy with international travels), I'm a bit anxious.
Will I blow out a knee from packing too much? Will I forget to put something in the bear cannister and have something pilfered or torn to shreds? Will my equipment malfunction since I haven't used most of them for so long?
Seriously, I don't think I've actually gone deep into the Eastern Sierras since Lundy Canyon near Mono Lake or Horsetail Falls not too far south of Mammoth Lakes.
So I look forward to the change of pace and returning to the way we used to do Nature outings. Stay tuned...
