Seeking ride to Courtright Reservoir, 9/9

Post by nathanm » Fri Aug 17, 2012 1:06 pm

I'm planning to do an abbreviated version of the Sierra High Route in September, planning to start from the Courtright Reservoir east of Fresno. I'm totally inflexible on my start date--I need to get there on Sunday, September 9. I'm looking to arrange transportation to the start.

We'd be willing to hire somebody to give us a ride either from Oakland (5 hour drive each way) or the Fresno Amtrak station (≈2 hours). Our preference would be to find somebody who would be driving some or all of the trip anyway, to avoid the irony of having somebody drive 500 miles in a day so we can enjoy nature. Alternatively, if anybody is heading from Oakland to Florence Lake, Bishop, or some other trailhead no more than 20 miles from Evolution Lake on that afternoon, that would work for us as well. With that plan as well, we'd be willing to cover expenses in exchange for getting you to work around our tight schedule.

Thanks,

Nathan

Hi Nathan,

Welcome to HST! Wish you luck in finding someone.

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.

Have a safer backcountry experience by using the HST ReConn Form 2.0, named after Larry Conn, a HST member: http://reconn.org

Thanks! Apologies for my first post just being a request for help, but assuming the trip works out, I'll post a report afterward.
