Had fun this past weekend doing some trail magic for the 2013 NOBOs with Joe Jackson (Video) at Stecoah Gap in North Carolina. We fed burgers and hot dogs to forty plus hikers coming through the gap during a two-day period. It was great to meet all the folks heading north to Maine. It sounds like it’s been a tough couple of weeks out there on the trail from Springer Mountain with lots of snow, cold temperatures and rain to start their journey so far. I’m so thankful for the weather I had last year when starting my trek north…unseasonably warm weather. These guys have had a pretty rough start, to say the least. They truly deserved some good food and a fun break.
Good luck to all the 2013 NOBOs !! Enjoy the journey!!
