Hitching's how I've always done anything from Parkdale all the way up to Fisherman's Bridge, but I've heard it's pretty tough to do the thumb shuttle these days with the pandemic. It'salso a hard hitch on the Gorge because it's not a straight shot. There's always the possibility of hanging out at Parkdale and waiting for someone else putting a boat on the water and seeing if you can hook up with them - if someone's launching at Parkdale, you know they're going all the way.
