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
