Re: [John Muir Trail] ride needed
You may want to consider hitch hiking.
Earlier this month I hitched from Whitney Portal back to the car in Mammoth Lakes. I started hitching at 5:30PM from the portal, caught 2 rides to Lone Pine, and after about 30/45 minutes of standing with my thumb out (I hadn't showered or shaved in 4 days), got a ride back to the car in Mammoth Lakes where I arrived at about 9PM (we stopped at a Carl's for a quick bite to eat).
Folk's will stop for backpackers on SR 395. You shouldn't have a problem.
