I left my truck there once and hiked down from carvers only to find the windows busted out and my stuff thrown out all over the place.(I didn't have anything worth stealing back then). The car that was next to mine was stolen!. It is a notoriously bad place to leave a vehicle and it has been noted in many AT publications over the years. I don't have a solution for you though... you may go to WhiteBlaze.net and see if anyone on there has any ideas. If you are bringing a phone you could call a shuttle when you reach 19E and leave a second car in nearby town of Roan Mtn. Sorry to throw this at ya... just lookin out.
