Arriving in Lone Pine
I entered the Mount Whitney lottery a few times in 2015, and entered my
friends as well. I won arguably the best or second best day of
the year - the Sunday of Labor Day weekend! Once you win a
lottery entry, they disqualify all your other lottery entries, as well
as those of any of the alternates named on your trip permits.
Ray signed up for this year's Whitney trip immediately since he wasn't going to Switzerland.
Paul quickly indicated there was no way he could go on another trip so quickly after Switzerland.
Kent wanted to go, and was going to go, until his Porsche fuel line
broke 2 days before the trip, leaving his stranded in SLC with two
broken vehicles (his Jeep was in the shop).
Mike decided to bring the RV out to Lone Pine a few weeks before the trip
