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 [email protected]. 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.

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.
