“Two years ago my family was browsing in a used book shop in Maine when we stumbled upon a map of the John Muir Trail. It was right then that the dream began. Since that time we’ve read and researched like crazy to address the many logistical puzzle pieces that would exist for us to complete the trail. Even after countless hours of watching JMT YouTube videos and reading dozens of trip reports we still had questions and missing pieces in our plan.
Then we found Strider, who drawing from her many years of experience throughout the Sierra backcountry was able to provide the insight we needed to pull the pieces of our plan together. Her timely response to our many questions was greatly appreciated. I’ll be heading out on this adventure with my teenage daughter and I was a bit apprehensive if the hiking itinerary she and I created was feasible as this is by far the longest backpacking trip either of us has undertaken. Strider reviewed our plan and provided the encouragement we needed. We will soon set off on what I’m hoping will be the experience of a lifetime with my daughter. Thanks Strider!”
