    Do you mean Ron Haven? If so, he sold the motels from what I've heard and is running a hostel and shuttle service - and probably can hook the OP up with parking as well. https://baltimorejacksplace.com/ and https://www.facebook.com/groups/263478863849208/

    I haven't met Ron Haven yet, but Ron Brown also handles shuttles in the area https://www.facebook.com/Rons-Appala...4270272614034/ and would highly recommend based on my experience last summer. Assume both would have good parking recommendations.

    Try The Further Appalachian Shuttle in Blairsville, GA. He covers that area, works with you to get a place for your car, and gets great reviews from many who have used him.
