I have a tenuous foothold in Silver City; caretaking a house & my status may end in Apr.-May & no idea where I may wind up - or not!  House owner may retire & choose to live here in Silver, thus ousting me, or he may choose to occasionally stay here, each time with my vacating the premises.  Hence, the less-than-firm strength of this offer:
If I'm here, can offer all support minus an overnight (per owner's wishes); would incl. shuttle to/fro and around town (it's spread out quite a bit), shower/laundry.  So plz. contact me at jonaphipps at hotmail.com for ph. #.  (which is also listed at Bike Works & Bike Haus).  
Happy Trls. & I hope I can help.
Yrs.,

> Some things I've read talk about the ideal starting time being mid-Apr with 'winds' beforehand that are best avoided.? In thru-hiker world, are these 'winds' really to be avoided?? I imagine the temps might be a bit easier earlier in April.
> Also, the shuttle to Crazy Creek starts in mid-Apr.? If I did decide to go earlier, does anyone know of a local who might be convinced to set up reliable water drops for the first bit?? Or, is doing it without pre-arranged water drops safe?? Or, can I conceivably do my own water drops without a 4WD and because it's so close to the border, what are the chances the water would be found by me and not someone else?
