EVERY pilgrim (or car-pool driver) must, without exception, submit the shuttle request, even if you suppose otherwise — including pilgrims of the ‘modified events’ who are keeping their vehicles throughout the pilgrimage.
The pilgrimage’s shuttle service includes pick-up at your your arrival point Thursday (only), delivery to check-in & accommodations Thursday, and delivery from your motel Friday morning to the step-off area. Shuttle drivers confirm the itinerary when bringing you to your accommodations Thursday.
Pilgrims camping at the Lake George Battleground Campground Thursday night do not need to be shuttled Friday morning to step-off, because the step-off area is at the Campground.
To request Thursday’s shuttle service to the step-off location in Lake George Village from any of the locations numbered 1 – 3 below, submit this linked form to pilgrim-organizers asap only after registering, but no later than Tuesday, September 20.

A pilgrim first arriving Friday morning must also leave his vehicle parked somewhere (legally, to avoid towing) in Lake George Village.
