Dear fellow Mountaineers & Guests. If you are considering this hike, I just wanted to give you some info for your decision making before signing up………… If you sign up for a hike, it is assumed you have a way to get to and from the trailhead. While carpooling is always suggested by the club, it can not always be depended upon to be available, so be prepared to drive your self. This means that you may also need to purchase a Northwest Forest Parking pass, or a day pass to get into Mt Rainer, etc. Both are good reasons to make the effort to car pool if you can arrange it………. The Mountaineers or hike leaders take no responsibility for the drivers’ proficiency, automobiles condition, etc. This is strictly an arrangement worked out between the driver and their rider(s)………. Please remember that the official club carpool rate is 15 cents per mile, for every rider in the car, plus your share of any fees.……… If you want to be a rider, the best thing is to check your profile on the Mountaineer website, or call the clubhouse to see who has offered to be a driver. This information should be available by the Friday before the hike, at or before 1pm. If you can phone someone, and arrange to ride with them, then you are all set. If you can’t contact a volunteer driver, or no one volunteers, then plan on driving yourself. If this does not work for you, because you have no car, then you may decide to look for another hike……… If you end up driving, you might consider one of the internet map sites, like Google maps or yahoo maps to figure miles and time from your location to the trailhead. The trailhead and nearest road will be on the 10 essentials map you pickup…….. Meeting at the trailhead and arranging your own transportation puts more of the responsibility on the individual participants, but that’s how I have decided to do it this year on my hikes, given the Mountaineer carpooling policy changes. Other leaders may have taken on the carpooling coordination for their hikes. Ask them if you are not sure……. As always, be prepared with food, sufficient fluids, extra clothing, and directions to the trailhead. My hikes are always slow pace, so if you can not hike slow, then you might be happier on another hike. These are social outings, so we hike together for safety and fun. An email will be sent to you the Thursday before the hike. Make sure you read it that night, or on Friday. Jo
