Planning a thru-hike beginning ~September 1. Trying to determine cheapest way to access the northern trailhead. Haven't bought my ticket to fly into Arizona yet - hoping to determine which city to fly into first (including possibly St. George, Utah - waiting to hear back from Suva Shuttle on a price for shuttle out of there).
So, (1) anyone else trying to hit the northern terminus at the same time and want to carpool?, (2) any tips/advice on the topic?
FWIW, my overall plan is to have mailed my bike to Southern Utah (probably St. George), to retrieve after thru-hiking (which will involve a hitch from Southern Arizona back to Southern Utah), and a subsequent cycle to Salt Lake.
Thank you for any advice and suggestions you all might have!
