I have a High Sierra Trail permit for 5 and due to hikers bowed out I have 4 vacant spots available. The HST hike is from 08/10/2015 to 08/17/2015 and I have reserved a camp site in LodgePole for the night before the entry date. I wonder if any fellow hiker is interested in joining me on the HST backpacking.
Please send me a private message if interested with contact info.
Thanks. I hope I don't have to do it solo.

Update: 3 hikers expressed interest in the HST from other message boards. Surprisingly I received no response from this board. Only 1 vacant spot is available as of today if the 3 potential hikers are sure about their intent. Happy trails everyone.

Are you a member on the HST FB page? If so, you could advertise over there:

Thanks for the suggestion Lyndon, however I do not have a FaceBook account, please feel free to spread my request around. Even though I am able to do it solo but it is prudent to go into the wilderness with somebody. I have set up transportation to be drop off at Lodgepole and pickup at Portal (at no cost to hikers if they can come for the rides).
I love your website. Your pictures are beautiful and I read and re-read many of your trip reports many times. Thank you very much for spending the time writing them and sharing you experiences.

Update: 4 spots on the HST permit are available as of today as the potential hikers couldn’t take the necessary days off for the hike. Anybody interested? Looks like I will do it solo.

I copied and pasted your last post to a couple of facebook groups. hopefully someone is interested.

People dropping out seems to be a common occurrence. A couple others have mentioned it on the HST FB page.

Thanks Lyndon, appreciate it very much.
There are no takers yet and this close to the starts date it is highly unlikely anyone will be interested and ready. I am heading out to Lodgepole on Sunday regardless. Hope the weather is nice throughout the hike and it looks like it will be.
