KMC guideline for payments to car pool driver

If you carpool with someone, remember to reimburse them for the carpooling costs at the end the day. We suggest $20 per vehicle per hour of driving on paved roads, to be shared by driver and # of passenger and $40 per vehicle per hour of driving on rough logging roads, to be shared by driver and # of passengers, and in adverse conditions, at the discretion of the driver. If the trip is less than one hour, please pay your driver $5 regardless.

It is not the trip leader's responsibility to arrange for your transportation to or from the meeting place. Please put muddy hiking boots in a clean plastic bag and change into runners after the event/activity.
