From: Clair Tappaan Lodge <[email protected]>
Subject: Add to PCT Trail Angel List

Message Body:
Greetings!

I would like to have Clair Tappaan Lodge (www.clairtappaanlodge.com)  added to the Trail Angel List.  We have hosted many thru-hikers in the past.  The Lodge (operated much like a hostel) and it's regular guests love having the thru-hikers here.  We have overnight accommodations in single gender dorms or group rooms, with family style meals included in our reasonable rates.  For a small day-use fee showers, hot tub and laundry machines are available.  The Lodge is located 1.5 miles from the trail on Donner Pass in California.

Thank You,

Peter Lehmkuhl

Trail Angel near Elk Lake Resort in Bend Oregon

From: Amanda Baker <[email protected]>
Subject: Bend, OR trail angel sign up request.

Message Body:
My name is Amanda Baker. Bend, Oregon has been my home for 24 years. Elk Lake Resort is only a couple miles from the PCT. With 48 hour notice or more, I can offer assistance at this point of the trail at Elk Lake Resort. Examples: picking you up and taking you to REI, post office, getting food. Bend is a 40 min drive away. I am off Cascade Lakes Highway often in the summer, camping, running, fishing, ETC. I love doing support for ULTRA distance runners and have wanted to help on the PCT for a while. Thanks!

Message Body:
My family and I will be doing multiple weekends (not sure which ones yet) at the Sunrise Trailhead just north of the Laguna area.  We will there on weekends starting early March through May.  Chairs, recharge station, cold drinks, burgers/brats, salad, first aid (we may be joined several times by the Nursing club from the community college where I teach) and drives into Julian if needed.  We'll also make sure (once again) that there is water available at the trailhead if the regular water source fails again.  We'll see y'all there!

Email me from the trail if you need help in the area.

PCT Trail Angel in Seiad Valley

From: Jesse Valenzuela <[email protected]>
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

Pacific Crest Trail Angel in Kelso Valley serving Lake Isabella, Walker Pass

From: Jen Jones <[email protected]>
Subject: I want to be added to the Trail Angel List

Message Body:
I live in Kelso Valley,  part of the Kern River Valley in California. This summer I have given several PCT hikers rides from Lake Isabella to Walker Pass and brought hikers from Walker Pass to Lake Isabella. I also did specific rides to the Lake Isabella Post Office and the Vons Parking lot. I have a double cab Chevy Silverado truck with an 8 foot bed covered by a camper shell, room for 4 people comfortably (although I did transport 6) and their gear. I am a Registered Nurse that has lived in the Kern River Valley for 34 years. I enjoy meeting the PCT hikers and hearing their experiences. I can meet hikers and transport them from Kelso Valley Road where Bird Spring Pass intersects, anywhere on Hwy 178, Lake Isabella, Walker Pass and anywhere in between. I can be contacted through my e-mail for advanced transportation notice or if I see hikers on the road, I will pick them up there! I do work 3 nights a week but I can assist hikers as best as I can.
