I've been trying to do some research on this as an end to end backpacking trip. My interest was piqued when looking through Kelsey, but I've found a few more TR via some googling.

It appears to be a very wet, quite difficult hike. Sounds awesome early July when it's nice and hot. Some good fishing?

A few logistical things I'm concerned with.

-I have this idea that I can take a flight down there, but don't know if I could pack a stove, or knife, or... What kind of rules are there for this type of thing?

-It is total immersion wetness. I have a plan to line my bag with several dry bags, and a pelican case for electronics. I can use my mattress to float things across the swims.

Any experience in these things?

Any experience on this particular hike?

Anyone interested in going? I'm thinking Early-Mid July. There are 60-70 dollar round trip flights out of Provo or Ogden, but only on Thursdays and Tuesdays. I'm thinking fly down Thurs, get down in it on a Thurs, then fly back Tues?

I have friends/family in the area and would be able to at least arrange a beginning shuttle.
