Hiker Feed

Hungry hiker

Hikers appreciate free food, especially when it is in the form of hamburgers, hot dogs, fresh fruit, water and little debbies. If you live near the trail take some soda out to a road crossing and many hikers will thank you.

There was one particular feed that was advertised as soon as we got out of Damascus for Trail Days. The sign said: 4th annual hiker feed 112 miles from Damascus, on May 26. As we got closer there were signs in Atkins and other places counting down the miles to this hiker feed./ A bunch of us timed our hikes...doing lots of miles on day...to hit this feed as it opened. We joked that maybe we would get there and there would only be a few water bottles.

But, we were not disappointed! This hiker feed was put on by a couple of section hikers and they knew what we needed. There were hamburgers, hot dogs, potato salad, spinach salad with fixings, brownies, corn on the cob, fruit, muffins, chips, water, gatorade and milk. I am sure I missed some things. It was quite the spread. They even told us to take stuff with us as we left. I took a bag of chips and some cherries. Many thanks to these guys for their work. Another day we got water and nachos. Awesome!

  2. Hi Renee,
    The son of an MCC co-worker is also thru-hiking and fundraising. His name is Seth Shober… sethsatjourney.com From what I can tell he is a few days ahead of you. His folks are meeting him at Harpers Ferry on June 9. Can I send something along for you to pick up when you get there? New boots?:) Barb
