Does anyone know about shuttles from Lake Placid to Lake Durant State Campground? It looks like Broadwing Adventures in Lake Placid will do it for $190 but I was wondering if there are cheaper options. ... See MoreSee Less

I made it. Crikket and I completed our thru hike in 11 days! We were shuttled by Jack from Broadwing Adventures who had others he shuttled looking out for us on the trail. I limped my way into camp the second night and met Mark, Todd and Vern (correct me if I'm wrong guys!) who shared their fire and wine with me and circled all the best places to stay on my map, including campsites that weren't marked on the map. We were picked up on our fourth day walking the wrong way to the post office by wonderful Amy who took me to the PO, fed me pizza, introduced me to her friends, let me stay with her overnight and definitely overfed Crikket who did NOT complain! Amy gave me extra dog food for the road, provided me with laundry and a shower, and I could not be more thankful for this trail angel that helped me right when I needed it. We met lots of incredible people along the way and saw beautiful places, but most of it was overshadowed by incredible pain from blisters and a fall that bummed out my ankle. I legitimately got stuck in the mud once, pulled an agonizing 21 mile day, continually forgot I had bras and underwear hanging on my pack on "laundry days" while having full conversations with people I passed on the trail, and wrote, "I'm going to make it," in every journal entry and trail log. We kept going and I am now extremely proficient at fire starting, primitive camping, picking water sources (my UV filter died and I spent the last 4 days drinking straight from streams), fixing and improvising gear (had to sew Crikket's backpack and lost my trowel), washing myself and laundry in lakes and streams, and being comfortable alone in the dark. It wasn't always fun, but I learned I am stronger and more capable than I ever imagined❤️ Thank you all for the incredible advice and encouragement as I prepared for this adventure: here some pictures to sum up my trip! ...
