RE: [RC] Multi-day point to point? - heidi

The only solution I've been able to come up with, which is less than
ideal - but works - is to have a vehicle to shuttle you back to your rig
so you can drive it to camp. If you had crew that could drive the truck,
but not the rig, your crew could do that for you. Or if you brought a
car, you could drop the car at the end point the night before. Certainly
not a great solution, as it would probably take a minimum of 2 hours to
go back and forth, and this isn't what I want to be doing while tired.

I was really surprised to find out that other point-to-point multidays
don't offer the service that we did when we put on Lost Wagon Train.  We
had a group of drivers and a shuttle rig, and charged people who needed
rigs shuttled a fee for each day they used one of our drivers.  Each night
we worked out a driver schedule--some days we had to make two or three
trips to get all the rigs moved, but we fed and housed the drivers and
provided the shuttle rig, and the drivers made some $$$.  I think we
charged $25 per shuttle--so drivers made anywhere from $25 to $75 per day,
and got fed and had an adventure.  :-)  We had some pretty capable people
driving--some of them endurance riders themselves.
