a bit much for someone from Tennesse with little snow exp. ,but for the hiker
who can deal with some snow, you'll have an uncrowded  trip of a lifetime. (
not a good idea if you are of the ultra-light school ) This isn't for
everybody or if your into big group hiking for 2,600 miles, but there are
some pluses.  P.S. So Raymond Jardine is now a anti-stove monger? Stoves are
most useful with an early attempt (  a grave understandment ) Knees??? I am
41 and have a replaced ACL and now use cheap garage sale ski poles to hike
with. At 240 and 6ft., I can still hike and climb with no trouble. My knees
feel great.      <<

I agree. Let's all start our PCT hikes in March next year, carry a stove
or not based on erroneous second-hand information on what Ray advocates, and
have knee surgery.  <vbg>
