[pct-l] Water Agua Dulce to Mojave (and Beyond)

Since no one has passed through north yet, I haven't had the opportunity =
to get an updated water report.  I do have my reports from last year at =
this same period of time, but in the section referenced water conditions =
change rapidly.  Consequently, you'll need to continue checking reports =
for current conditions.  We just had the first northbounders arrive =
yesterday, so they should be able to provide some current info within =
the next two weeks.  As has been said again and again, do not count on =
water caches!

Please note that the following water report was for LAST YEAR (2000).  I =
will update with a current report as soon as hikers have passed through =
and validated the information.  Water info for Wrightwood to Agua Dulce =
will be posted at the Big Bear Fire Station.  Info will also be posted =
at the PCTA website.
