I'm considering hiking to Elephant Tusk and possibly scaling the peak in august.
Be sure and check out the SummitPost.org info on this, posted by none other than Viper.
Your brothers and I nearly killed ourselves just doing the Banta Shut-In in April when we ran out of water long before we were done because we mis calculated the distance AND one didn't even bring any water!
Be sure you are hydrated before you hit the trail.
I drink water until I think I'm gonna barf, and then I drink another 32 ounces.
Shea....(The Other Other Brother)Dave we all know what really happened out there at the Banta Shut-in. U drank the standing water....went desert crazy....and dumped our water out. I told you one Iodine tablet wasn't enough. :lol: *JK*Anyhow, thanks for the advise guys. Dont worry Dave...you're coming with us.....wouldn't think of dragging butt for miles through open desert in 100+ degrees temperature without our buddy at our side. :twisted: We'll make time for NiRvAnA also!
However, some people were drinking massive amounts of water and not eating.
