Need ride from Clovis to Isberg Trailhead

Postby seagorn » Fri Jul 13, 2018 1:42 pm

Hello,
I need a ride to the Isberg trailhead to pick up my car which is stranded there. I was on a solo backpack trip a few days ago and got very ill and had to be airlifted from the backcountry. I have been recovering at the hospital in Clovis, and expect to be released soon. thought I try the HS forum first, before arranging an Uber or calling far-away friends for rescue!

will gladly pay for all gas expenses and time. If you are heading that way, please respond and I'll give you a phone number so we can coordinate..

Thanks,
Jason

Hi Jason. Glad to hear you are safe after your ordeal. If you still need a ride, try these two forums:

First, https://www.yosemite.ca.us/forum/ and go to the Yosemite Hiking & Backpacking forum.
Then, https://yosemitenews.info/forum/ and go to the Backpacking and Hiking Yosemite and the Sierra forum.

Good luck! :)

Welcome to HST Jason!

I too am happy to read that you are successfully recovering, and will be released on Sunday! Good luck with finding someone who can help you with a ride Jason.

I don't give out specific route information, my belief is that it takes away from the whole adventure spirit of a trip, if you need every inch planned out, you'll have to get that from someone else.
