What itinerary did your 2017 crew get? Our two crews both received their first choices 630-G-1 – #25 (crew I’m on) and 630-G-2 #13. Both look like great itineraries. We won’t have an opportunity for a rendezvous in the backcountry. We have 4 of 9 camps in common but none on the same day. They depart Miranda on day 8 and we stay there that night. Would have been nice but not a big deal.

We are on #25 also, a few weeks after you. We are crew 715-G.Apr 6, 2017 at 12:51 pm #3461905
Tag – 25 looks like a nice trek – get conservation done early with fresh legs :-), camp at Crater Lake which looks like it has a nice campfire show – small camp – and a great view of the tooth from the campfire area (we stayed there on our all adult autumn adventure), two nights at Miranda and finish up with a fairly short day on the trail from Flume Canyon to Ponil where root beer and a chuckwagon dinner awaits. I told the scouts that even if they didn’t like beef stew it would be the best meal they’ve ever had due to the fact it isn’t dehydrated. :-) Can’t wait!

Jamie – agreed. I’m really excited that the crew chose 25. 1st shower on day 11 might be a bit tough, but otherwise, it looks like a great itinerary. I’m excited that the Scouts will get to Baldy and Tooth of Time.Apr 21, 2017 at 11:04 am #3464334

We are crew 610-M. Our first choice was #25 as well, but didn’t get it. Got our second choice, #26, and although it’s still a nice itinerary, I wanted the boys to have the opportunity to hike both Baldy and Tooth. I was disappointed to see that only 4 or 5 itineraries had both summits. I went twice back in the 80’s, and both tracks, which were in the mid 60 mile range, had both. Oh well, maybe if they feel up to it at the end, we can schedule a day hike up the Tooth.Apr 21, 2017 at 12:41 pm #3464347

Would love to have any intel on trek #29. We are 805-A. Our second choice was #35…almost wish we would have missed out on our first choice to get the long one, but, that late in the season, not a lot of competition for slots.
