Shuttling vehicle from Tule TH to Reavis TH

Post by stevebo » Feb 28 2018 6:58 am

Does anyone have any good ideas about how to get a vehicle parked at the Tule Trailhead to the Reavis Trailhead?

I will actually have a 2nd vehicle dropping us at the Tule TH and heading back to Phoenix, but the driver of the first vehicle is hiking, so we don't have an extra person to shuttle the first vehicle to Reavis and go back to Phoenix with the 2nd.

Thanks

@stevebo
Here's a possibility...
Yes, it will require two non-hiking drivers and a spare set of keys, but IMO it appears the simplest solution.

SCENARIO:
- Cars #1 & #2, along with the hikers drive up to Tule TH
- Drop off the hikers, one of whom must have spare keys for car #1.
- Drive cars #1 & #2 to the Reavis TH
- Leave car #1 at the TH
- Both drivers drive back to Phoenix in car #2
- Hikers show up at Reavis with keys for car #1, which has been waiting patiently for the hikers to arrive and reclaim it.

P.S. Depending on WHEN you wish to accomplish this and IF driver #2 is willing to hike a short distance out-and-back with me, or wait while I do so, I just may be available to be the extra driver.
PM me with details of date/time if your driver #2 is open to it.

You don't mention when you are going... but a few of us are headed to Tule on 3/24 and may be able to ferry a coupla folks. Not from Reavis T/H but AJ area.
That's a hell of a shuttle... may be quicker to WALK back... ha.

is this a trick question:

both drive to Reavis, leave the one hiker vehicle.

drive to Tule, 2 hikers get out. Other driver heads back to phoenix

It's a crappy shuttle, but this isn't a magic trick?

I thought I should be more specific regarding the shuttle for this coming Sunday. Please let me know if this could work for you.
  • We are a group of 10 backpackers going from Tule TH to Reavis TH (not Rogers Trough)
    We leave Tempe around 7:30AM on Sunday March 11th, the day someone would join us to do the shuttle
    We have 3 vehicles for the 10 of us, plus 2 drivers plus the shuttle person we don't yet have.
    All 3 vehicles will go from Tempe to the Tule Trailhead.
    10 hikers plus 1 driver will hike up the trail and camp near Two Bar Mountain that night.
    The 2nd driver will head to the Reavis TH off the Apache Trail with the shuttle person. 2nd driver drives their car. Shuttle person drives remaining vehicle.
    Shuttle person returns to Tempe with 2nd driver after dropping off remaining vehicle.
    The next day, the 1st driver hikes back to their car and drives back to Tempe. If you wanted to join for the overnight out-and-back, you could hike with us and then do the shuttle on Monday March 12th with the 1st driver
    We can pay you. $50? More?
Thanks,
Steve
