[Cdt-l] East Glacier to Chief Mtn Customs transportation?

I must hold the record for the fastest hitch from East Glacier to Waterton.
When working in East Glacier one summer I left there Saturday at noon after
getting off work, and in 2 hitches made it to Waterton, from there I took
the launch to Goat Haunt, then hiked the 13.5 miles to Boulder Pass, where I
met up with my buddies before dark.  That was 40 years ago. Don't think I
would do that now. -Ron

The shuttle really is your best option.


When I started the PNT at Waterton, I hitched from East Glacier to Waterton
Township, and it took EIGHT different hitches, and about four hours.  The
shuttle is a sure thing, and you can count on it.  


With summer daylight until 10:00pm, you'll still have plenty of time to hike
to Goat Haunt that first afternoon.

How to get from East Glacier to Chief Mtn customs? The earliest shuttle
connection drops you at Chief Mtn customs at 1:45 pm, which is a little late
to get started for us. Any trail angels, or other modes of transportation?
Hitching? Suggestions welcome.
