    Default Need a ride from Baton Rouge/New Orleans area to Springer Mtn, mid to late March

    I'll be traveling from Baton Rouge to Georgia mid March for my hike, preferably starting March 15th. If anyone is passing through on their way from out west, I'd love to hitch a ride with you.

    Fall back plan is to catch the train.

    I thru-hiked two years ago and will be hiking GA to PA this time around.

    Thanks!

    Megabus New Orleans to Atlanta $40.
    cheaper than dirt.

    Leave during the week, rates are even lower. Take MARTA from the Civic Center destination to the northern Terminal and get a shuttle.

    PS You can also get MegaBus from Baton Rouge to NO

    Actually the last time I bought dirt was for my asparagus bed. A 40 lb bag was about $1.50 about 5 gal. I guess it's mostly the transportation costs.

    I've decided to take the Megabus (great idea!) to Atlanta, then take Marta to visit cousins in Marietta for a couple of days.

    Unfortunately they won't be able to bring me to Springer Mtn. Is anyone aware of shuttle services from the northernmost Marta reachable point? I think it's Alpharetta, GA.

    I'm on a much tighter budget this time around so I'm trying to do this as cheaply as possible.
