  1. Park and ride

    Hello; I posted a while back about hikers parking their cars at our house and giving them a ride to their destination, then picking them up. I would charge per day for the car and so much a mile for the ride. No one responded, but I still think it is a good idea. We live in central VT, so I would be willing to travel through out VT.

    I reached conclusion (2) based on my lack of ability to handle significant elevations changes ...

    When you last heard from me, I was Johns Spring Shelter, having seen a bear but not one place to get a drop of water. No surprise that I abandoned the idea of washing myself and my clothes; instead I resolved to get water the next day. Since I was the only there as it began to get dark, I planned on a quiet night under this roof.
