Pat, I see you've finished the SHT, congrats! I plan to go in Sept. I'm not 
sure yet if I'll just do what I have not done yet or the whole thing. Where 
did you start and finish and did you use the shuttle?
I see by my map that there is a gap near the south end and around 2 Harbors 
So I was thinking of starting near 2H or just north of there on co rd 301 
depending on if that section is done. As I understand the section near  
Cosby-Manitou is done now. Last year We hiked Cascade River to Judge Magney 
SP. I think that is as far as the shuttle goes.
Not sure how the trail is north of there or how to shuttle.
Also I was thinking of using some of the state parks for resupply, (ater 
calling them first) you know just dropping off food at the visitor center 
and picking it up there. Would you see a problem with this?
