Bill & Alp... it looks like i'll be bussing it to Tlach when I arrive on the 17th, and see about spending the night at Senior Gerar's when I get there. If he's full, I'll either catch a ride on one of his shuttles or walk to the hut. ...your thoughts? What time do you expect to arrive at Sr. Gerar's? Since I haven't heard back from him yet, I don't know his policy on sleeping accomodations or how many he can accomodate... but I'm sure it'll be packed... i guess any more than 30 have to sleep on the floor, and I'd rather just go and sleep on the mountain if that is the case. Have you had any luck contacting him?
