I'm planning to do an abbreviated version of the Sierra High Route in September, starting from the Courtwright 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 Bishop or some other trailhead no more than 20 miles from Evolution Lake, 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.
