While I don't technically run the shuttle, I do provide shuttle service. My fee is negotiated based upon the level of service needed -- one way back to the trail head, food/supply drops along the trip, pick ups at train or bus stations, etc., can be accommodated. My availability is generally good although I canoe, hike and work part time - in that order.

My shuttle work is "not for profit." I provide shuttles as a service to fellow hikers. Profits from shuttle fees are donated to a charity of my choice. In the past it's been the St. Francis Breadline in NYC. Future profits will likely go to the Adirondack Wildlife Refuge and Rehab Center in Wilmington.

If you know of someone who wants to discuss planning a shuttle, have them pm me to get my contact information.

Shuttle me this

Hookman33,
My son and I are planning a thru-hike on or about July 21. Can you shuttle us from LP to Northville? We'll be able to firm up plans within the next week.

Retirement has a wonderful way of clarifying ones priorities.
