My JMT trip was cut short and I need to get back home ASAP. I'm staying at the hostel in Lone pine now. I just need a lift to anywhere with an airport. L.A, Reno, Vegas, SFO, etc. I will happily pay for gas, or meals.
Thanks

Leave word over at the Dow and at the Hostel desk that you are looking for a ride. Look into a car rental out of Ridgecrest and a ride there as well as airports.

Thanks for the tip. I left notes arround town and at the hostel last night. I went to the cafe across the street this morning and stuck a deal with a guy that lives in OC. So I'm good!
Unfortunately car rental was not an option (23 is too young for rental in the US).

Thanks!

United Express has shuttle flights out of Inyokern Airport (IYK), near Ridgecrest, into Los Angeles International Airport (LAX). From Lone Pine it is about 1.5 hours to IYK.

Sorry, no. My mistake. I haven't flown out of Inyokern since 2012. Closed in September 2013. Apparently they might reopen it for commercial flights next year.
