Hi! I am planning on being stationed with my trailer and large amounts of water at the Scissors Crossing juncture all of March and April.  I will be on the South Side of S2 where the hikers will be coming out of Mt. Laguna into Shelter Valley.  I will also have shade, chairs and other necessities such as  Band aids, postcards, phone charger brick and miscelaneous items to help PCT hikers through this dry tough section.  Can't wait to see you there

My Wyoming family would love to help out in any way we can, as you travel the southern Wyoming sections of the CDT near Encampment, off of Highway 70

Comment: Hi! My Wyoming family would love to help out in any way we can, as you travel the southern Wyoming sections of the CDT near Encampment, off of Highway 70 (mile 1569). Offering pick up on trail and drop off on trail to Encampment or Saratoga for medical emergencies. We do live in Laramie 1 hour and 30 minutes away. So we need a heads up! If you are in a jam, I can make some calls for you if I cannot assist you 🙂 We have a trail box on the SOBO entrance at Battle Pass. Be sure to sign the log! My boys and I would love to hear your adventures! We can always bring you to Laramie if you need to leave the trail for hospital, airport, bus or rental car. Happy Trails! ~The Laramie Contos Clan 307-220-8134 call/text -Heather 307-761-0684 call/text- Kevin

I supply the WCP shelter with gourmet cookies, bars, PBJ’s, and assorted other items about every 2 or 3 days

Comment: We built a log cabin on West Carry Pond, Maine thirty-six years ago and the WCP Shelter has been a project of mine for 12 years. During July, August, September and until October 6th I supply the shelter with gourmet cookies, bars, PBJ’s, and assorted other items about every 2 or 3 days. We sometimes have what we call a barge party and serve an evening meal to anyone in the shelter, weather permitting. I have taken care of serious tooth ache with service to the ER, a stress fracture that needed a couple of days rest and hosted our family and friends as thru hikers. Blue skies, dry feet and safe travels. ME
