Sorry guys, I started this group a long time ago and kind of rarely got back to it. Promise I'll start working on what I envisioned more often. If you see something that's out of date speak up. Go ahead and follow some of the basics with your info also.

Just got back from spending four months in miles hitching-708 (All but 138 were solo, so a total of 570 solo miles)....didn't regret one moment of it...yes things would have been a lot easier with a car, but I got just about everywhere I wanted, and did just about everything I wanted to do, and have much more stories to tell!

I was also wondering about transportation, a "temp" car to get around in, cheap and sell quik after season. Any buy here pay here places?

Haven't owned a car since 1994... but I get around very well, thank you. While in India my main transport has been trains. It's great while it lasts!...the motor industry is booming.

I would like to add that in the 3 years I worked for the Grand Tetons and Grand Canyon. I took the bus mostly. I did have my mother for experience drive me to the Grand Tetons but yellowstone, Bryce and Grand Canyon I took a bus or went with a group. I did find out as well that I can take a bus from Denver to Idaho falls and then fly into Jackson Airport cutting down on air fare.

Anyone have suggestions on purchasing a vehicle in that is cheap but will get you around? I know I will be 20 miles from the nearest lodge, and although it's between Seward and Anchorage, it may prove to be rather difficult. I was originally going to drive, but at a minimum of $1000 in gas, each way, along with 3500 miles each way, the $225 plane ticket was screaming my name!

First season worker in Glacier this summer. Actually this will be my first trip to Glacier. Hope there will be no issues, but if there is I'll let you know.

In Alaska I recommend checking out a company called Parks Connection. They run motorcoaches every day ranging from Seward to Anchorage to Talkeetna to Denali to Fairbanks. It is affordable and runs every day.
