I am planning to backpack Shenandoah National Park sections 1 and 2 over 3 days (likely Sat, Sun & Mon) (38 miles)., possibly very soon. I also plan to hike Linden, VA, Route 55 to Front Royal, and stay at Mountain Home Hostel in Front Royal on Friday night (7.5 miles). Before heading home, I may stay overnight at MHH again after completing the SNP sections. If you are interested in sharing the shuttle for either or both parts of this trip, please let me know. I would enjoy sharing conversation at the huts, but like the HYOH method, so I don't slow anyone else down, or feel pressured to move fast.
I am an older backpacker, with 500 miles completed during the past 4 years, and tend to move faster up hill, and very slowly down hill.
