Wow ! AND WHAT a season it's been ! We have had SO many folks coming and going through our doors since mid Feb. - that we have been overflowing into another off-site building of our facility (but that a story about our growth for a few months from now ).

We've seen our share of Germans for sure - but more than ever - FAMILY - is really coming to the trail to try an Appalachian Trail thru-hike together! Sisters and brothers, Dad's and daughters - very touching !

We are so thankful to all the hikers that have stopped by and enjoyed our "little slice of home" before getting back on the trail - and we look forward to helping thru-hikers (to what is usually projected as the end of the season in Mid May). BUT - things are changing on the Appalachian Trail now - and the year has been busier THROUGHOUT than ever before. Who knows what we will see the remainder of 2015. (We were thrilled with 100 southbound thru-hikers in 2014 )

Whatever 2015 brings - we look forward to it ! Happy Trails !
