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

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.
