Big Tuna--There are a couple of options to getting the kayak to Phantom. Wheels aren't legal because of the mechanical device in a wilderness thing, unfortunately. Also commercial trips aren't running at that time but science trips are. And those are some sad, poor sons of b--. Offer them money and they will jump on it like two bums fighting over a bologna sandwich. Try USGS in Flagstaff. Try wildlands council in Flagstaff, and there may be one more. Also, try other trips. I think there's something like 60 trips going that month. I wouldn't care abit if you gave me your skirt so I could Squirt. Pay me? Forget about it. Done Deal. While we are talking payment, I'll hike it for $500 cash, check or CC. If you come a few days early I'll give you a job running shuttles so you can pay me
It doesn't have to get there right at your launch day. There are places to store it. Put out an auction for runniing it down through privates from Jan-March. It's sure to garnish a handful of japslaps on this forum but it's incredibly funny listening to the creative banter! A gift! For all!

1. Has anyone ever hiked in their gear and yak in to Phantom?
2. What is the hike like if I have all that gear? Is it realistic? How long would it take?
3. Are there companies that will get my gear and kayak down there? Raft? Mule? If so which ones and how much do they charge?
4. Any suggestions beside the obvious (which I can't do) of running the whole ditch?
Any knowledge on this would definitely help me out.
