As Doug mentioned, Jason and I now need the ride on Saturday, not Sunday. We're planning on flying in on Friday evening, crashing in a hotel Friday night, then getting some last minute supplies and, local help willing, heading to the trailhead.
Doug: thanks so much for helping us out and "sweetening the pot!" Speaking for Jason and myself, always love hiking with you and your help here means a ton!!
Thanks, in advance, to all.
P.S. - the gas money, meal and extra cash still stands too!!
