You must be one tough gent to hike I-10 to Mission Creek this time of year.
Last Saturday I did Pioneer Mail to
Burnt Rancheria CG.  The temp. at 5,000 to 6,000 ft
was about 90.  Your temp. must have been well above 100.

Do you have any idea how much water you drank and how
much your pack weighed?  I used over a gallon of water and
my pack weighed about 35 lbs.  This included water, a little
food and my basic life support goodies.

See you at the ADZ next April.
