Tim - Even if you start at 2 am you will catch up to us before the tram

Just trying to decide if it's worth it to get the extra 4 hours of sleep or just start the hike when we get there from Phoenix. Planning on staying at the good ole Motel 6 after the hike as I don't think I can drive back afterwards, not on 4 hours of sleep best. Hmmm.............

Tim - Sleep is more important. How many miles do you have to drive?

I think it was about a 4 hour drive from Phoenix, 280 miles. I could barely stay awake as the passenger on the way home last time, so I plan on staying the night post hike as well. I've done a few Grand Canyon "Marches" on no sleep and have never had a problem. But thats only 14 miles, with 4600 feet loss then gain. I won't drive home after an overnight hike up there w/o sleeping again.

I have 1 other person joining me at this point, so I think we will plan on staying at the Motel 6 both nights and shooting for a 2am start. Hopefully we can manage 4-5 hours of sleep before the hike.

Good grief Tim. Thats like driving to the northern Sierra Nevada for me. Thats major driving. Staying in Palm Springs the night before is the only reasonable way to do it. Its only one hour's drive for me.

This weekend looks like the weather will be cool enough for C2C without a midnight start.

I might head up on Saturday if I don't get it together to head out of town.

Saturday May 5

Howdy all :D

Kathy's right -- Saturday looks like a great day with a predicted high of 82 and low of 59 in Palm Springs. Plus, there's the full moon on May 2, which will help with the light.

I'm tempted to head up around 4 to 5 AM myself.

Miles of smiles,
Ellen

Howdy Cy :D

I'm toying with the idea of going beyond the tram myself, although I'm presently too chicken :oops: to commit to a full C2C. I look forward to seeing you again on the trail.

Well I'm having a hard time getting motivation for the like right now. It would just be me coming up from Phoenix, my 2 others backed out on me. It's a long drive to do a semi-solo hike.

Plus I got a nice size blister on my hand from too much batting practice at softball. I really use my trecking poles and know that wouldn't be pleasant the way it is now.

I'll just have to see how the next few days go and see if I can build up some motivation for it.
