From: Marianne Lins <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Help PCT hikers Message Body: I have a little cabin on Airbnb. I can change the rates at anytime. I can also change the minimum stay. I live close by and can pick up hikers at the trail heads. I have a shower, washer/dryer and plenty of room in the cabin for 6 people and a huge fenced yard for those who want to stay in their tents.

From: Ms. Barry McAlister <firstname.lastname@example.org> Subject: Near Chester Gap/Front Royal, VA Message Body: Hello! 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. Usually, I like to get a text a day before a hiker needs a pick up, but I have been able to accommodate last minute. A small donation always appreciated.
From: Rose Kalamarides <email@example.com> Subject: PNT/Northport accommodations Message Body: I live a few miles from Northport WA. If you are hiking the PNT and need a place to stay, I have a bedroom with private bath, private water/dryer and private entrance. Just call me and I’ll come fetch you for the short 3.5 mile drive north to our family farm. I’m a true angel and won’t charge you a dime. Will probably feed you a home cooked meal too. I’m now 62 and will live vicariously through your adventures. You only have to share your stories of the trail. I also have a cabin on Deep Lake which may be more suitable depending on how many are hiking with you.
From: Sam and Gabe Subject: Can offer a room/ ride Message Body: Hi there, My husband and I live in South Lake Tahoe, CA. We can offer rides down to Echo Summit, Carson or Luther Pass, and any of the surrounding areas within the Tahoe Basin. If you need to get to North Lake, we can do that too. We also have a bed and room to offer if need be, but we have a dog (in-case you're allergic). We are avid hikers, bikers and explorers. We have hiked sections of the PCT and TRT and can also provide maps if needed! Please call us at (415) 608-1756 (Gabe) or (510) 734-9649 (Sam) if you need anything we offer!

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.

Comment: PCT trail angel. I would like to be added to the list. I drive/transport, open my home and yards, can help resupply tree, hold/deliver resupply, pick up, etc. Pretty much I’m awesome and rarely say no 🙂 have a registry filled with love and references. Also maintain water cache, magic, snacks at walkers pass. Based out of Lake ISABELLA/kernville/walkers pass. Willing to drive to bishop/mammoth or lancaster when needed
Name: Ravensong (Carolyn Burkhart)
Comment: There is a Hiker’s Hut at my home, with the Mexican room, which leads to the Canadian room with kitchenette. Upstairs in the loft are the sleeping quarters as well as under the pines outside. Ravensong’s Roost is by the junction Highway 20 and Lost River Road to Mazama Store. You can get there via Rainy Pass or Harts Pass. Ravensong, a veteran PCTer from 1976, offers information regarding early winter safety and alternate routes to get to Canadian border. Mazama, is the the northernmost town on the PCT and the place to go to get warmed up and geared up as the North Cascades quickly change to winter conditions.
