We once hired a packer to ascend Sawmill Pass at the start of a cross-Sierra hike .We climbed 7500 feet up switchbacks in six hours. Why don't you contact packers on the Eastern Sierra Packers list about dropping a cache on one of their trips with other clients ?

Packer going over Taboose Pass will cost at least tripple the ammount being offered, if not more.

Why not do something to help yourself? Pen and I hiked the JMT last year which included a short jog to another pass to retrieve our previously stashed food. All you need is a good location, one or two extra bear canisters and a bit of extra work to hike up there before and after.

Isn't self sufficiency the name of the game?

Hiking up to Taboose Pass isn't that tough - it's hiking back down to the trailhead that's difficult.

if I'm still bumming around that time I'll take up the offer. i think what you need to do is increase the weight requirement to weed out the weak and get real offers. don't you want fresh fruit and veggie after being out for a week?

Now you're talking, Bob. Are you volunteering for a well needed handicap during the Challenge? :D

X2+1. I didn't understand all the complaints some folks have made about Shepherd Pass until I walked down it. Blech! :)
