      My apologies, I just saw this message. Thank you! I called the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council and they were able to answer some of my questions.

    Hi, I'd like to join this event. I checked out the website and it is still unclear to me whether we can do just 3 days instead of 5. I have Friday off work, so I would be able to do only fri, sat, and sun. Please let me know if this is possible and if it would still include a shuttle to and from Bart. Thank you!

      Hi Morris, thank you for the advice. I actually just left you a voice mail as well. I called the Bay Area Ridge Trail Council and they were able to answer my question regarding leaving our camping gear at the sites and hiking with a small backpack. They were unable to answer my question about whether a shuttle will be able to pick me up from Bart on Friday morning for the hike on Friday. I would like to hike Friday, Saturday, and Sunday. They said you might know. If you have any information about this, grateful if you could give me a call or write a message here. Thank you and have a great day!
