I don't have a car, and need to get to the Tetons in late July, early August, and back. I don't know the exact dates yet, but as this is for what I consider a once in a lifetime climbing opportunity, gas, food, etc. are definitely offered! If anyone has, or can fabricate an excuse to go then, and I can bum a ride, I'd be super grateful!

Thanks, OLH

Bumping.

If anyone has any ideas (I am very, very broke) to get this done, let me know. I'm not comfortable with hitching anymore.

Best, Helen

Nope. You'd think, but no.

When you get the dates hammered out, let me know. There's a chance I'll be headed over around then.

Thanks! It's looking more and more like I'll have to suck it up and find the bucks for a car rental.

Have we crossed paths yet? I don't know very many here, and can't always remember names or sort out even the folks I do know!

Lemme know if you ever want a catch, are brave, and an old lady would do! ;-)

Best, Helen

No, we've not met. My family moved to Boise last fall, and three weeks ago was the first time I've been climbing in two years since recovering from surgery. I'm sure we'll run into each other at the Black Cliffs. I hope your Tetons trip works out.

Nice!

Dates are Wednesday, 7/26 thru Sunday, with Wednesday and Sunday mainly being driving days. 

Car rental, gas, AAC climbers ranch, park entrance, end up around $385, if I don't eat for four days or spend any money. So, realistically, this is coming in at a little over $400. Still a long stretch if I can come up with the bucks.

So, yeah, if that's when someone was going, it would really help.

Thanks! Helen
