Has any else heard of this group? lonestartrekking.co m They are based out of College Station.  Their prices seem kinda high.

Anyway, Big Bend and Guadalupe season is getting ready to start for me.  Hope to see some of y'all out there.

Can't say I've heard of them...but they are a for profit company that provide trips that include....

two professional, medically trained,friendly, and knowledgeable wilderness guides. All meals are included, from dinner the first day through lunch on the last day. Top of the line gear including; backpack, tent, sleeping pad, sleeping bag, head lamp, stove, and cooksets. Campsite and backcountry permit fees.

They provide food (didn't mention transporation), gear, fees etc. They must be making some profit, so prices can't be too low as it includes a bunch of stuff and you get two guides. It is not an easy business...I've looked into it.
