I'm currently in the planning stages for a 15 day 14 night hike along the entire trail. I've got 2 people currently interested in coming with me for the first 3rd of the trip (Longmire to Sunrise). I plan to leave Longmire and travel counter-clockwise. I'll be submitting my itinerary as soon as they let me (March 15th I think it is) for 5 people which is the maximum for non group camp sites.

If anyone is intrested in joining me let me know either here, or e-mail me at drake@drakebrimstone.com I may be able to arange some transportation.

Below is my current itinerary I have room for 2 more people from Longmire to Sunrise and 3 people for the rest of the trip. (This is also listed at backpacker.com but their forums are messed up and I can't login there anymore.)

Start date range 8/11/08 -> 8/22/08 returning 15 days later

Longmire -> Paradise River ~4mi

Update on Itinarary, I will Not be stopping at Devil's Dream, making this a 14 night hike rather then a 15 nite hike. It makes for an 11-12 mile hike on the last day, but it is mostly downhill. Additionaly, I may be stopping at Snow Lake instead of Paradise River, making the first two days hikes about 9 miles each.
