You can stay but I have work the next day.

    I've been wanting to do this hike, but don't have a high clearance vehicle. My car is very small. Are you driving up from the valley?

      That sounds great. I'd love a ride and am willing to chip in for gas and any fees necessary for the campsite and/or park entrance. I'm a slow hiker as well, but very strong, and have climbed some major mountains. I'm flexible about Friday, just let me know your plan when you are sure.
