    AT shuttle help Port Clinton, Pa

    I am trying to get out for my first section hike of the year March 19-22 from Pa 325 Clark Valley to Port Clinton. I have already arranged a shuttle with a friend parking my truck in Port Clinton and being dropped off at my starting point. Depending on how my knees feel after all the rocks, I may press on to Little Gap Rd. Danielsville, Pa. Just wanted to know if there is anyone local who would be interested in giving me a ride back to my truck in Port Clinton on Friday 3/25/11 if I make it that far. Moreover if any HF member needs a ride between Pine Grove Furnace SP and Swatara Gap SP this year, I will be glad to help out if I can just send me a PM with the details.

    Reminds me of when I got shuttled out of Port Clinton...it was via the now defunct backpack store in town. It was the most expensive shuttle I've ever had on the AT. Days later I got shuttled by the owner of Blue Mountain Lodge and it was far more reasonable...such that I took a nero and stay at the lodge for excellent food/shower/battery charge and this was after the Knife Edge section so was even more enjoyed.

    Thanks for the information Medicine Man I have heard of the knifes edge section but didnít realize it was in that section. I donít know whether I will push it or not. Part of me says after four days on the trail I should be starting to get some trail legs under me and that might help me get over that sectionÖ..who knows, I will figure it out when I get there.
