I have been hosting AT hikers at my home in Huntly, Va for two years.  I post on the Facebook page of “Women Hikers of the Appalachian Trail”, and I provide sleeping quarters, laundry, dinner al fresco, swimming pool and p/u/ d/o at HWY 522 near Front Royal/Huntly.  Hikers can find me on Facebook @ Barry McAlister.   My email is Barrybearsmile@gmail.com.

Subject: Trail Angel up road from RPH Shelter
Message Body: Hello - I'd like to help through hikers - I have been an avid high-altitude climber and lover of all things outdoors.  I understand the beauty of finding oneself through the challenge of going into the unknown outside.  I have also had family members complete the AT. I'd like to help with rides, meals (I'm a recently trained vegan chef), lodging, laundry, showers if anyone needs.   I own a home just up the road from the RPH Shelter in NY.

Trail Angel along & near the MD AT

From: Stan Mordensky
Subject: Trail Angel along & near the MD AT

Message Body:
I became a trail angel well before the summer of 2013 when my son, (Dino DNA) was a thru-hiker on the AT.  I saw how any kindness or little gestures to help any hikers was appreciated.  I began teaching & training my MD public school students high adventure skills from an MCPS course, "Outdoor Ed for Secondary Students" about 1973.  I often traveled the four-state area (WV, VA, PA and MD) as our playground helping others when needed. Now in approaching our 70s we hike a little shorter distances but enjoy the outdoors and helping people.  I live one hour off the MD AT,  Looking forward to seeing  you along the MD AT.-Stan 301-639-8584

Wife is section hiking SOBO, Virginia. During the course of visiting her, I have become addicted to being a trail angel. Contact me if you need a place to stay for a day or more, many can sleep in my house, if you need a ride somewhere, or if you need you to bring you something. I can make almost any time work. Text or call 540-288-7027. Shout out to the great hikers I have met this year, including Hummingbird, Dandelion, Hazmat, Fireball, Minnesota, Old School Hippy, Viva, Tuttleman (so cool I got to see you finish your flip flop!), and of course my lovely wife Maria (please somebody give her a trail name!). Hike your hike!

Message Body:
I live on the CT/NY border (about an hour from the AT). I’m happy to help in any way, shuttle, emergency assistance, in a pinch I could host a hiker (2 at most) overnight and provide shower, laundry, hot meal (I live in a 700sqft). Also can bring supplies to the trail. For overnight assistance, typically need a few days notice (sometimes I travel for my job) but will always do what I can.
