Great help, thank you.

Did anyone notice whether there was a place to put a tent down for the night at or on Long Pond?

I've recently been looking at getting a packraft and one from Alpacka. They fit an interesting niche or two.

I've read with interest several trip reports by Tick Magnet about Island and Long Pond. I'm interested in hiking into both of them. I know you can also approach it from the Lily Pond area as there is...

Crossett Pond

CalTopo shows a hiking trail on either side of Crossett Pond. If I'm not mistaken, the land on which the trails reside is privately owned.

Are hikers allowed on the property to hike?

I did a hike the other day to Black Mtn. On my drive out on Shelving Rock Rd, I saw a Timber Rattler crossing the road. I had to pull to the side of the road to avoid hitting it. It wasn't happy my...

Since the thread began, and certainly since the last discussion of shutting it down, the government has stopped denying the existence of UAP/UFOs. I'm sure some here got a few chuckles along the way...

Exactly...only available for in-person purchase which is either a curse or a blessing. The OP is looking at a 400+ mile round trip. A lot of time and cost especially if he finds their boots simply do...
