Shuttle or Hitch from South Lake to North Lake

Postby BigMan » Fri Aug 10, 2012 4:15 pm

I tried to search this, but words "North," "South" and "Lake" are too common.

A friend and I will arrive Sunday 2-3 pm at South Lake and need a ride to North Lake.

Do you think we should arrange a shuttle in advance? Or hitch it?

Thanks! :)

Thanks, Maverick.

Would you drop the packs up at North Lake in advance?

Leave the pack and your friend at North Lake, easier for one person to get a ride.
Would also make a sign with "North Lake" on it.

Always seemed easier for a one to hitchhike with a backpack - (shows you are a real backpacker and IMHO a necessary prop)
and always a sign saying where you are going...
IE, Spelling $outh lake with a dollar sign ($= S) helps too.

Good one Markskor though the $ sign won't work too great for the N in North Lake. :lol:
