which mountain has a better set up in May? (timberline or bachelor)
Timberline is off the chain this year.
is choosing a tent for sleeping arrangements a good idea or is that better to do in the summer months?
Back of your car in timberline parking lot. Or find a hostile. camping is better in summer months unless you have the legit proper gear.
where is the cheapest place to stay thats close to the mountain excluding camping?
do the mountains have any type of shuttle transportation?
hood has a shuttle that goes up to timberline for a small fee. but it's so easy to bum rides from the bottom of the access road.
is there a grocery store any where near either of the mountains?
goverment camp. I do not know about bachelor.
ive never been out there and know basically nothing about it so any help or advice is very appreciated!advise / help get +k
