I'm looking to climb Shasta later this month after flying into Sacramento. Here's the challenge: how do I get from the airport to Shasta and back within the strict limitations imposed by a grad student budget? I've looked at trains and bus lines, but it seems that nothing stops close to Mt Shasta City. If all else fails I suppose I could rent a car, but I can't help but think there are reliable, less expensive ways to get to and from the airport. (I've hitchhiked before in support of climbs, but not sure how the CHP views this...)
Thanks in advance!

I don't have a firm date in mind, but roughly: 13 or 14 June fly to Sac, returning to Sac on/about the 22nd. I'm pretty flexible on the tail end, but can't go any earlier than that. I'd love to share a ride (more than happy to chip in on gas too!) but understand if your schedule isn't conducive. I could also fly into SFO or Oakland too, if that made it easier.
