    Default Shuttle in Delaware Water Gap area??

    Is there a source for a reliable shuttle from Delaware Water Gap to Palmerton? I could use a ride next week. I do not have a current Thruhiker's Handbook.

    Thanks in advance.

    Here's a list that the ATC provides on their web site. It looks like the list was last edited just this month so I am guessing it is current. A quick scan reveals there are at least a couple people on there who cover that stretch you are interested in:

    Rachel and Chuck, owners of Edge of the Woods Outfitters in DWG. FANTASTIC folks. Totally honest and dependable. Chuck saved my section hike a few years ago when I lost my money while on a shuttle with him. He was able to track my "wallet" down, secure it for me to pick up in DWG, and even offered to loan me some cash if I needed it. All this before I had paid him a dime.

    Again, GREAT folks.

    Just wanted to add, when in DWG, give the Village Farmer and Bakery your business as well. Besides having some EXCELLENT food, they were also instrumental in getting my "wallet" back to me, including several hundred dollars in cash. It was one of their customers and their employee who found my wallet and held it for me to pick up. Great, honest business who went way out of their way to help a hiker.

    I contacted Chuck and will be getting a shuttle from him on your recommendation. Thanks a bunch.

    Great, tell him I said hi. Maybe won't remember me, but probably will remember the situation.

    Have a great hike, that's rocky section as I recall, but nice.
