My husband and I are arriving a day early, September 13 at 1:30. We have already arranged a ride with Randy. Is anyone else coming a day early? Maybe we could share a ride. Let us know.

Arriving Kalispell on Sept. 7th around noon if anyone wants to share cab.

Ginny Aug 31, 2015 at 05:02 PM

called Randy @ Glacier Charters, 4068923390, he said it would be best if only one person called and made a reservation for all 5 people, and to call just a few days ahead. He said he is busy with other Road Scholar trips right now!
has anyone made a reservation yet?
Lynn Price Aug 31, 2015 at 05:22 PM

I made a reservat this morn just for myself, saying I wasn't sure how many others were going that day (Sept 7). He seemed to think that was OK.
Ginny Aug 31, 2015 at 08:35 PM

thanks for the information!

Ginny Aug 31, 2015 at 03:58 PM

exciting! 5 of us arriving about the same time.
thank you, Mary and Lynn for checking cab's.
we may need 2 cabs if we cannot all ride in one.
lets us know what you find out.
can't wait for our trip!
Lynn Price Aug 31, 2015 at 04:34 PM

Just phoned Glacier Charters & made a reservation for next Mon aft at Kalispell AP. The guy said if they have 4 or more people it'll be $25 each person -- sounds good to me! Give him a call at 406-892-3390 if interested.
Cheryl Marklund Aug 31, 2015 at 04:40 PM

Lynn, so sorry for the confusion. See the other posts. We are coming on Sept 14

MARY KEARNEY Aug 31, 2015 at 03:53 PM

Glacier Charters was recommended for shuttle to location. 406 892-3390 for shared services. MK
Ginny Aug 31, 2015 at 04:07 PM

MARY KEARNEY Aug 31, 2015 at 12:41 PM

BTW, I had heard that Glacier Charters was the only game in town. Not sure if that's true or not? I took it back to Kalispell w/ one other person and the charge was $70. When he picked us up, there were 10 of us and it was $25 each. Great trip... Only a couple of negatives... If you are a tekkie, bring a power strip. Motel Lake McDonald is quite rustic and only 2 power sources. There is no phone or tv and no laundry facilities. Also, internet is spotty and SLOW... otherwise great!
Ginny Aug 31, 2015 at 10:29 AM

great info, thanks!
