    Exclamation Fellow Hiker Looking for a short ride!

    Hello Fellow White Mountain Aficionados! Longtime lurker, newbie registrant here.

    A friend and I are planning a Presidential Traverse this weekend. Unfortunately, we only have one vehicle. We plan on parking on Route 2 and hiking to Route 302 with a couple of small bumps in between.

    We are two twenty something clean cut individuals! We don't bite! We'd also give ya a few bucks for your time!

    Check out my photos at picasaweb.google.com/nlanier

    Your help would be immensely appreciated!! I don't look forward to trekking back to Route 2! Please e-mail me: nlanier@gmail.com or call at 413-949-1891

    If I don't answer leave me a message! Or you can just respond here... Thank you..

    If nobody responds, you can easily hitch back to your car. Many people will stop to pick you up.

    That is very good to know. I came out of the Great Gulf late last weekend on RT 16 and a generous man at a campground gave us a ride back to Appalachia.

    I assumed that with all of the generous folks in that area that it would be easy to find a ride, but I hadn't heard for sure.

    Thank you for your insight!

    Unfortunately we do not live that far north, but Rich is right. When I was up there for STP08, I picked up a really nice couple along 16, and took them back to their car at Glen Ellis Falls. It was on my way so it wasn't a problem. People are really nice to hikers along the hwy.

    I'll vouch for the kindness of others as my son and myself, heavily laden with full packs, started off with only a few hours before sunset and received 3 rides in quick succession from the AMC camp at Pinkham to the Appalachia trailheads and probably hoofed it for only about a half mile.

    Thank you everyone for your responses!

    As it turns out, there is shuttle that runs by the Webster Cliff Trailhead at 9:15 and I crawled out of my tent after three hours of sleep and took that sucker back to Appalachia! What a lifesaver.

    Anyway, the hike was spectacular - And looong! Haha! I will post pics and a more detailed trip report soon.

    Cheers.
