    Some of the things I would do differently next time, Ray, are: 1. Take time to fish; fish were rising in every lake I camped by, and I would love the variety they would bring to meals. 2. Take fewer photos. My iPhone 4 made picture taking so easy, I took 1,300 photos, which gave me a nice slide show, but slowed me down and took me out of the moment; I’ll do more of just experiencing and appreciating. 3. Start and stop earlier each day. Had several late-night finishes and missed too much scenery hiking in the dark—for instance, over Glen Pass. 4. Start my trip on time. Due to business intrusions, started from Yosemite Valley three days later than planned. This meant I had to make up three days in order to resupply and meet a friend on schedule who joined my hike at Onion Valley trailhead on the other side of Kearsarge Pass. This led to my number 3 challenge. Agree with all your points. And however, you do this hike, it’s a mind-blowing, life-altering experience.

    Hi Ray, will you be doing a daily video diary of your thru-hike like you did the first time?

    I see your itinerary and was wondering the approx. miles per day using that. Setting up a trip with the family and plan on about 3 weeks on the trail. Due to vacation time and planning it wont be till summer 2015 but its never to early to plan! Thanks
