    Have you ever stayed at Stoney Brook Farm in Virginia. Just call them and they will come pick you up for free! (540) 668 - 9068 . Free Food, Cabin, Laundry, and Shower in exchange for a few hours of work per day on a beautiful Organic farm. The people are super friendly and welcoming. If you are waiting on a package or doing re-supply this is a great place to stay. If you are going to have a few zero days at least they won't cost you any money. They also have many thru-hikers that live there now and many post-hike job opportunities available for after you finish the trail.

  • Winter Linville Gorge

    On February 27th, 28th and 29th I did a two night out and back trip from Wolf Pit Road trail-head to Table Rock mountain and back. In typical cafe fashion I planned this trip while driving 80 mph east on I-40 heading back from the Smokies. I stopped at a McDonald's to borrow some free Wifi to get a picture of a the trails and away I went. Going up Wolf Pit road in my 2002 Honda Accord was risky with the amount of ice and snow on the road. The final hill going down to the…
  • Great Smoky Mountain National Park

    On February 25th and 26th I did a nice loop in the Smokies from Big Creek Ranger Station parking lot to Deep Gap along the AT south of Mt. Cammerer fire tower. There was about 6 to 8 inches of snow while going up. I stealth camped due to the amount of snow coming in and the next day went down the Big Creek trail. Overnight there was another 6 to 8 inches of snow and freezing fog.
