Volunteer Driver for Shuttle Service

Post by SuperstitionGuy » Oct 04 2012 4:37 pm

Occasionally there has been a request on HAZ for someone to assist in a car shuttle and or comments on HAZ about some one assisting with a car shuttle.

Having just returned to Arizona after being out of State and country for a number of years, being retired and somewhat limited due to a bad knee preventing me from participating on serious hiking and backpacking trips, I occasionaly would not mind assisting others in this way.

Perhaps others on this forum also would be willing to perform this volunteer service and maybe Joe B. can create a forum on HAZ to help faciliate such a volunteer service as well. Is there any interest, comments or sugggestions regarding this or am I :bdh: ?

I was wondering if there was a kind soul that is willing to get me and 2 other HAZers a ride to Rogers Trough trail head so we can hike section 19 of the Az trail. We would need a ride on Saturday Feb 15. The person who was going to give us a ride got called in to work so he is no longer able to shuttle us to the trail head so that is why I am doing this on such short notice. I am willing to pay for gas and bring you some adult beverages of your liking and if that isn't your cup of tea I am sure we can find some way to compensate you for your time. If you are able to give us a shuttle please pm me

Thought I would see if anyone might be interested in shuttling me from Mount Lemmon to Catalina SP on Thursday the 24th. It's a long shot, I know. Probably, I would arrive from the park on top around 4 PM, at the latest.

I may attempt to set this up again in the second half of May, if anyone is interested in either a shuttle, or hike.
Nothing more enjoyable than a good hike out of town.

Hi everyone,

I am flying in to Tucson from Denver March 16 at 4pm to start a thru hike of the AZ trail. I am hoping to find my way to the southern terminus of the AZ trail that day. I'm just putting myself out there to see if there are others who may be headed that way or if I could talk to someone about a ride or if someone can point me in the right direction. I'm happy to pay for gas, food or any other costs as well as compensating time. my email is acameron24@yahoo.com. I will be checking this site as well for any reply's


Thanks,
Alex

a shuttle from Canyon Lake to Tortilla Flat.
These are two miles apart. I doubt you'll get any takers to drive out there to save you half an hour of walking! There's plenty of tourist traffic in that stretch, so if you don't feel like a two mile walk on a dirt road, you may be able to hitch a ride.

Canyon Lake what? Trailhead by the bridge next to the marina? Or....?

Tortilla Flat what? The store or the trailhead that takes you to the highway?

If your just talking about the highway (Apache Trail) just stick out your thumb....

If your talking about the road from the old ranch to the highway very few of us have the vehicle to drive it anymore.

One day while walking it I watched a mountain lion come down from the east, bound down onto the road and continue on to the valley floor to the west. I am glad I was not driving that day as I probably would not have ever seen him.....

@SuperstitionGuy
So, I was mistaken about Tortilla Flat. I apologize for the confusion...

I am interested in doing the traverse North to South from Canyon Lake the Peralta Trailhead. This requires a shuttle.

Sorry Stupawx, I'm recovering from knee surgery and don't fit into my truck so good yet. Good luck, that's a nice trip through the Superstitions.

On every trip into the Superstitions, I find another Gold Mine. Today the mine was filled with Memories. I can not wait for the next trip.

Maybe think about getting someone else to go the Opposite Direction and do a Key Swap....

Not a bad Motto, but I imagine the Birth of that Motto had a Story behind it.... :lol:

@Stupawx
I may be available only on Monday the 2nd of that week.

You may want to consider a loop trip so you will not need a shuttle.

Also pick two routes one in the western part of the Superstitions in case it is cool and or rainy and another one in the eastern part of the Superstitions in case it is hot and sunny. The first week in April can be quite warm or cool depending on the various weather fronts.

PS the apple orchard at Reavis ranch often blooms the first or second week in April and there is more likely to be water in the eastern high country....

What's worse than arriving back at the truck, longingly looking inside the LOCKED vehicle at all that cold beer? More seriously... stuff happens... sometimes plans are forced to change... my motto is 'the vehicle is no good without the key, and the key is of no use without the vehicle - keep 'em together'.
While parked near the ignition point of the Schultz fire while hiking, Sally, who stayed behind while we hiked, moved all 4 vehicles from the fire's path. She was able to because we left each set of keys hidden with the vehicle (obviously the info about WHERE needs sharing). Of course that incident was not the catalyst for the motto, but one can see how it may pay off.

Tracey & I both have spare keys in our packs when hiking so if I fall off a cliff, at least Tracey has a ride home. :o :-k
