Key swap, car swap Grand Canyon Rim to Rim Aug 17-22

Hey, my post meets guidelines, but got deleted, no explanation, what is the deal? Other historical posts ask this same question.

We are doing Rim to Rim Aug 17-22 2014, going from North Rim to South (Bright Angel).

We would like to car swap, key swap or some related arrangement for transportation. Anyone interested in doing this or something like it?

There are 4 of us (1 minivan) and $340 for shuttle seems a bit pricey, especially if we can work something out with another group. We are part of the North Texas Outdoors meetup camping club, and already have camping permits.

I didn't see what happened to the previous thread but as an FYI to whoever reported it and got it deleted, a private key-swap is a pretty common practice among R2R hikers. Seems OK to post it here, IMO.

You might also try posting at Hitthetrail.com. That site is more specific to GC hikers.

David,

Did you get your key swap to work out? I am looking to do the same thing in the beginning of November and would like to know if you have any advice. Thank you!!!

We never made the connection, so ended up taking transCanyon Shuttle.
