@Rerun, no, but I do have some questions: were you starting at Whitney or Yosemite?  Did you get the permit via Recreation.gov?  or from the park?

I have normally started at Horseshoe Meadows just south of Whitney, northbound, that way a permit via the trail head quota system is almost guaranteed.

As far as 31 Aug, gosh I hope we can hike by then!
