So TioTony and I are planning a trip to summit San Gorgonio this weekend. Our previous attempt was unsuccessful, but, e also tried to lug ourselves up in in a day. This time we’re allowing ourselves three. The plan is to meet at his house Friday morning, hit the trail head as early as possible, and make it to High Camp that evening. This should allow us time to acclimatize a little before heading off for the summit. Last time, when we attempted a day trip up, each of us heard the little voices in our heads saying “no silly, this is as far as you’re going”, and stopped around 10,500 feet.
Then Saturday morning, we’re planning to wake up have a wonderful breakfast of instant oatmeal and instant coffee, then head off to summit. This should make us successful, if not, we’re just sad and probably will never make it. haha.
Here is some interesting information about the mountain from gorp.away.com: ‘11,502-foot Mount San Gorgonio — the highest peak in southern California.’
Wish us luck, I’ll talk to you after the trip to let you know how we do.
