    I am looking for a reliable and affordable Shuttle to Amiacola Falls for an AT Hike.

    </br> I had to change my plans from April Start to May Start and will be in Atlanta, GA on the 15th of May.

    </br>The Hiker Hostel stops thier Thru Hiker Special in April and that it was I had originally planned, but now with a May Start I am looking for another alternative if possible

    Thanks

    You can try Survivor Dave at 678-469-0978.

    I have not shuttled with him, but he was working the last couple of times I was in the area this past year.

    Parked Vehicle at Amiacola Falls

    On both my 2004 & 2005 Thru Hike I parked my vehicle at Amiacola Falls. $2 for a year.

    Getting back to Amiacola Falls from Maine is the tough part. I did the bus to train, to bus to train to hitchhiking.

    May 15th is a late start for sure. Do you plan on doing a Flip Flop at Harpers?

    Have a great time out there. I'll be there again in 2014.

    Thanks for the info.......

    Peanuts I spoke with him today and I am calling him back tonight when he is at Home he was on a Shuttle when I called

    Well my goal is to start and continue on as long and as far as my Wife will let me GO
    I Told Her I would stop when she wanted me back at Home

    If I go all the way I will probably have to Flip Flop due to BSP and Kathadin and the late start.

    Since I had to post pone my start Day (originally was to be April 5th)(My B-Day)

    I did Harpers Ferry to Duncannon last year so I could skip that section on this hike and still register a Thru and I would be Happy with doing that since it could save me over a week on the trail and that might be the difference in Making it before BSP closes and The Winter Weather shows back up.

    Just a Thought

    Here's a thought. If you get to Harpers Ferry, you can take a train to Wash DC, & from there a train to Boston. Take the bus from Boston to Hanover, NH and do NH & Maine. A lot of people will be hitting that area at that time, so you could connect with a number of Thru Hikers to Kathadin. Then, try and get a ride back to Hanover, NH and hike south to Duncannon if time permits.

    I had a ton of backup plans when I did my 1st thru hike. The one thing you have is time to think about it once you start.

    Just get out there and have a great time. How you do it is up to you.
