Trail Angel, Shuttles and more!.
I am closer to Falls Village so that might be the better town to list. I actually live in Lime Rock with a Lakeville address. It gets very complicated in this little corner of New England.

Comment: I live in Williamstown, MA just off of the AT. I can drive hikers to nearby towns. I’m in an apartment, so no overnight accommodations, but I can offer a shower and laundry.

Comment: My wife and I live near Washington DC. We can pick up hikers where the Trail crosses I-70 – about 14-15 miles west of Frederick, MD – or at the AT Conservancy HQ in Harpers Ferry, WV and bring them to our home for a few days of respite: a real shower, a comfortable bed, a washing machine and dryer, a chance to rest and catch up on the blog, buy supplies, etc. Pick up on Thursday afternoon only and return to Trail on Sunday. We do need advance notice – three days in advance is preferred – in order to adjust our schedules. Your tales from the Trail are the only “payment” we expect.

Trail Angels don’t grant three wishes to thru-hikers on the Appalachian Trail — unless they are wishing for cold water, free food they didn’t have to carry or some other creature-comfort not easily found on the trail.
We’re told: Don’t trust people you don’t know. Never take candy from strangers.
We believe: Trail Angels are different.
Need an example? How about the folks in Virginia at Burkes Garden Central Lutheran Church. They practice what they call “AT Trail Hospitality.”
