Sam Hughes: 575-436-2662; he doesn't really return calls, apparently, so you'll have to catch him at home.

    I personally drove 2 hikers, San Gabriel & Tika, from ADZ to CC in 2009. I paid Sam to shuttle me to CC in 2010; his $90 is quite reasonable - six hours of his time and a lot of wear & tear on any vehicle, not to mention the cost of gasoline right now. I drive roads like that here in Big Bend TX, and know what they do to a vehicle. Plus he'll help you with his water caches, and yours. 
    When trying to hitch from I-10 south 20 mi to Hachita in 2010, it was a holiday, and no cars passed in an hour; I called Sam, who drove another 40 miles round trip to bring me to Hachita, & on to CC, asking no extra $. I gave him $110.
    In one of my highly opinionated opinions, if you can't afford Sam, you can't afford to be hiking. You'll be the one leaving few or no $ in Trail Angels' tip jars. If you can't afford the Yogi-recommended $20 per night at the Saufleys, the Schwarzers, Nita Larrondes, the Persons, the Heitmans, the Dinsmores [to mention the "full service" places I can recall at the moment], etc, etc, you can't afford to be hiking. I've seen many, many hikers sponging off other hikers and angels; I've seen my $20 in the Dinsmores tip box, but nothing else from 3 other hikers staying in their dorm, using their shower & laundry, picking up resupply boxes there, and getting rides from them. Come on folks! These people give and have given thousands of hours of time and thousands of dollars to we hikers!
