Hacksaw is a great shuttle provider. He ain't in it or the money, he is a hiker too. He can give you a lot of pointers on the local trail in GA, as well as some other places. My reccomendation is you try e-mailing him, just be patient. He hikes and works about 3 different jobs here and there, as well as has a grandchild he likes to go visit. If you can get him, buy him a meal - we had a great breakfast at one of those country dinners in GA, my kind of place - and Hacksaw is good company.

The name Wes Wisson is familiar, I finally realized he is also the guy that was Bill Bryson's shuttle. I wonder what Wes has to say about him and Katz.

I tried to send an Email to Hacksaw to inquire about shuttle service, but recived a 'this function has been blocked by admin' message.
Was also going to send one to Former Admin, same message. Thanks.

The Weasel knows him, maybe he can help get in touch with him.

I don't run a "shuttle service", but I live within an hour of Springer and I'm on the trail (in GA) just about every weekend. Be happy to pick you up in Gainesville and deliver you anywhere on the GA section. Myself I am thinking very seriously about doing the GA section right after Christmas, so maybe could work out something with that, are you driving or flying in? You can reply here or at [email protected]

Just a thanks to all for responding...with the admission that I am a section hiker, the response shown is true evidence of the beauty of WhiteBlaze.net in how information and services can be shared. Consequently I have already beamed an email to 'Hacksaw' and Mongstad with the current hope that I can get together with Mongstad and get in a GA section or two...WhiteBlaze rules! and again thanks to all.

Yes I have that email feature turned off for spam reasons, spam spyders are good at extracting e-mail addys from forums and guestbooks. However Rock & Troll might want to turn this feature back on or vote on it ...... its there decision.

He didn't have much to say about them other than he had no idea at that time that Bryson was going to write a book, and that the book drummed up buisness for him.
