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.

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. Please connect me with any other websites/facebook groups that could help with this. Megan

Subject: I want to be a trail Angle
Message Body: I live in Seiad Valley in Northern California. I want to see how I can be a trail angel here. I am a caretaker for a property and the owner asked me, what I thought about hosting folks for the pct. Thought it was a great thought. I can offer showers, a place to camp, wash clothes, get a drive into store or town. Willing to BBQ also. I have heard the out ragest cost some places have. So I would like to do for a lower price. I don’t even know what to charge or how to even help. I don’t work because of spine injury and surgery so meet and greeting will be good for me. Please let me know. Thank you.Tel: 760-909-0566

Subject: PNT/Northport accommodations
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.
