DRIVERS: 
There is no cap on how many drivers we can have go this trip, however here are some things to consider and our driver guidelines. 

Gas & any Park entrance costs are drivers responsibility, but we do encourage those who carpool in your car to pitch in for gas. If you have a set amount your hoping to receive from each girl please let them know before they confirm to ride in your car. Driver assumes all responsibility for any tickets, car damage, etc. 

I highly encourage drivers to have a co-pilot in their car who can take over when the driver gets tired, this is 10 hours of driving in one day, plus hiking, driving will be draining. 

With all that said, IF YOU WOULD LIKE TO BE A DRIVER PLEASE DO THE FOLLOWING: Post a comment below with
