Just found this topic after opening my own topic in the Hiking section. I see now that I should have posted it here
Anyway, I'm leaving from Tucson to the Southern Terminus in the early morning (~6:00am) on March 19th so that I can start hiking at ~8:00am. My schedule is not flexible. I intend to arrange a shuttle and hope hat somebody else has the same schedule and is willing to share the cost.
