I am from germany and am planning to hike the AZT sobo starting mid-August at the Utah border, which, according to the guide book, should be a good time to start with regard to temperatures and weather (right?). Which temperatures will I have to deal with (besides Grand Canyon) during day and night?
my second question relates to food storage along the trail. are there certain regulations in specific areas? on my pct hike I only used my food bag and the bear can where required. how did those of you store their food who already hiked the trail?
my third question relates to water caches along the way. sobos not only start later in the season but also have a "water issue" right from the beginning. what are your experiences and how are you or have you been planning?
My last question concerns the availability of canister fuel along the trail for my jetboil - any reliable data on that?
Thanks a lot in advance!
