From: Raymond Clark <[email protected]> Subject: Trail Magic at Sunrise Trailhead Lagunas 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.
From: Lindsey Hahn Buechler <[email protected]> Subject: Trailer Angel Scissors Crossing Message Body: Hi! I am planning on being stationed with my trailer and large amounts of water at the Scissors Crossing juncture all of March and April. I will be on the South Side of S2 where the hikers will be coming out of Mt. Laguna into Shelter Valley. I will also have shade, chairs and other necessities such as Band aids, postcards, phone charger brick and miscelaneous items to help PCT hikers through this dry tough section. Can't wait to see you there

Comment: Hi! My Wyoming family would love to help out in any way we can, as you travel the southern Wyoming sections of the CDT near Encampment, off of Highway 70 (mile 1569). Offering pick up on trail and drop off on trail to Encampment or Saratoga for medical emergencies. We do live in Laramie 1 hour and 30 minutes away. So we need a heads up! If you are in a jam, I can make some calls for you if I cannot assist you 🙂 We have a trail box on the SOBO entrance at Battle Pass. Be sure to sign the log! My boys and I would love to hear your adventures! We can always bring you to Laramie if you need to leave the trail for hospital, airport, bus or rental car. Happy Trails! ~The Laramie Contos Clan 307-220-8134 call/text -Heather 307-761-0684 call/text- Kevin

Comment: We built a log cabin on West Carry Pond, Maine thirty-six years ago and the WCP Shelter has been a project of mine for 12 years. During July, August, September and until October 6th I supply the shelter with gourmet cookies, bars, PBJ’s, and assorted other items about every 2 or 3 days. We sometimes have what we call a barge party and serve an evening meal to anyone in the shelter, weather permitting. I have taken care of serious tooth ache with service to the ER, a stress fracture that needed a couple of days rest and hosted our family and friends as thru hikers. Blue skies, dry feet and safe travels. ME
