Here are the few trip reports that we have finally written.
We've added a note on our trip reports that reference how many days after the Tioga road has opened for the start of our trip. A strong link connects the Tioga Road opening date with the amount of snowpack for the year, and the amount of snowpack for the year has a strong tie with trail conditions, such as creek flows and mosquito blooms.
Check your trip start date against the opening date for the current year. Then, one can check that against the start time on the trip report. We hope this will give the reader a better idea of what conditions they may face for their upcoming trip.
We use http://www.timeanddate.com/date/duration.html to determine our trip timing.
At least, this is what we're thinking, what do you think?
