Loaded and ready to head north to the Whitney Wilderness area early tomorrow morning. Gonna turn 70 next month so I need to do this route while I'm still young!
That's the spirit! Good luck and watch out for muck.
I'm bringing a water bladder to add weight forward since my gear bag alone isn't heavy enough to counterbalance my weight- no matter how far forward I stow it.
Move the bleeping seat forward, reposition the thwarts, and use a removable portage thwart. You paddle a canoe exponentially more miles than you portage it, so ideal paddling position and trim are far more important than a permanent central portage thwart. JMO.
