<< With fuel, I always like to error on the side of taking too much.  

Especially when entering the Sierras.  I planned on taking about 7 to 9 days 
to walk from Weldon, where the trail was at the foot of the Sierras a long 
time ago, to Onion Valley and hitch out to Independence.  A freak late May 
snow storm in the driest year in the last 40+ made that journey take 15 days. 
 By then I had run out of almost all of my food and fuel and attitude!  

Oh, and my parents thought I had died.  Silly worry worts!
