    Great stuff Ray. I myself and planning my first JMT solo thru hike for September 2018 and looking forward to standing on Whiteney, or whatever its true name is… I’ve enjoyed reading your book, in fact several times now. Thanks for the inspiration and sound advise, oh and also for your service to our Country!

    Pretty good conditioning to summit Langley and Whitney on back-to-back days!

    Loved this story Ray. About 5 years ago I bagged Langley from Cottonwood Lakes trailhead and then two days later bagged Whitney from Whitney Portal, both day hikes. I thought Langley would be a great acclimation tool for me and it probably was, but I was sure wiped out by the time I staggered back into Whitney Portal two days later!
