      How many people plan to exit from MTR?  If 4, not so bad.

      from the link below:

      Florence Lake

      We can also shuttle between Florence Lake and Fresno, for the rate of $200 for the first 2 hikers, $25 per hiker after that (maximum of 4 hikers).

      We recommend that solo hikers use our message boards and the PCT-L to find other hikers who need transportation and split the cost.

      Contact Vermillion Valley Resort and ask if its shuttle bus will pick you up and take you to Fresno where you can get Amtrak or a plane.  You can walk MTR to Florence Lake in a couple hours, take the ferry to the other side of the lake, and hitchike to Kaiser Pass Road. The VVR bus/shuttle should be able (I assume) to pick you up there.

      Two of us will be hiking from Happy Isles to the half-way point (not enough vacation to do the entire JMT). This of course will take us to the area of the MRT. What is the recommended "exit strategy"? We are flying to SFO from Baltimore and plan to take public transportation from there. There is a possibility that one more person will join us, so a rental car may be affordable if that would help us to get out of Dodge.
