If you have good relationship with a LBS at home, try shipping through it. It's possible that they get a lower, merchant rate. Worked for us two years ago.
This morning I opened by Crateworks box for the first time since we got back from our trip two years ago. Inside was an itemized receipt from Glacier Cyclery. Shipping was $53/bike from Whitefish, MT to Philadelphia, PA. My box is a total of 86.5 in. Cheaper than the on line price I was quoted by UPS. And much cheaper than the $200 Delta/NWA wanted.
Ship it to a hotel or better yet a bicycle shop. If adjustments are needed, the bike will be ready to go.
Mind you I saw a picture from June 4 on Glacier Park-Going to the Sun Rd and it did look a bit un-rideable.
I'd pick a city that's easy/cheap to get you and your bike to.
For the first day, plan a reasonable distance to ride and a place to stay the first night, and just get out the door.
