Subject: Feel free to add me to the trail angel list.
Message Body: I am a PCT thru-hiker & a JMT thru-hiker, with plans for many more future adventures. I currently live in the LA/Ventura County area of SoCal (near Chatsworth/Woodland Hills) with my fiance. We can offer emergency rides, airport rides, especially to Burbank airport, rides to doctors, hospital, outfitters, other trail angels or hotels, and general assistance / trail magic (vegan awesomeness) / plus water cache set-ups to thru & section hikers. I am also willing to help other LA/Ventura area trail angels with emergencies, however, I can't -currently- offer a place to stay.  If you have an emergency anywhere from Wrightwood to Kennedy Meadows, give or take, send me an email or text, as I -may- be available to help you. In the summer, I may also be able to get you a ride as far as Tahoe or Truckee during certain times of certain months or at least get you a ride to public transit in the LA area.  Any donations for gas on a longer ride are appreciated, but not expected. I am currently an artist, designer, future author, and college student (Fisheries & Wildlife). My fiancé is a guitar instructor. I know what it was like hiking the PCT and needing assistance in the middle of nowhere.

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



When we are not on the trail ourselves, we could provide transportation from Chinook pass into Greenwater or Enumclaw.

Name: Valerie Coleman
Email: valeriegrimm@msn.com
Comment: We are both avid hikers. We’ve done sections of the PCT, part of the AT and last year thru hiked the Wonderland Trail. We regularly stock a cooler with drinks and snacks at the Urich cabin at Government Meadows. We have done laundry for people staying over a few days, have contacted friends and family since there is little cell service in the area, and have even contacted law enforcement when needed. We had an impromptu engagement party of beer and pizza for a couple thru hiking when a relative contacted us and let us know they were in the area. When we are not on the trail ourselves, we could provide transportation from Chinook pass into Greenwater or Enumclaw. Tel: 360-663-0810
