My old college friend, Clint is joining me for the next 7 days. It is great to have his company. We hope to push 151 miles from Castella to Seiad Valley.
We cowboy-camped at Callahan’s in Mt. Ashland the night before, and realized in the morning we were right next to Honeybadger and Dogpaw! It was great seeing them again. We hadn’t seen them since the town of Bishop, around mile 800.
For the first time ever, I helped someone else do a gear shakedown. Clint lost a lot of gear weight. We left his hammock and cook kit, amongst other things.
EXTRA: Joe Brewer has an excellent video showing this stretch of trail from Mt Shasta (Mile 1507) To Ashland (Mile 1727). I highly recommend subscribing to his channel:
