Trail Magic!!

Last year while hiking on the AT we met No Regrets and his wife 56 Strong.  Unfortunately life events forced No Regrets and 56 Strong to get off trail and return home.  We heard that No Regrets had decided to get back on trail in VA where they had left off at and continue his hike to then finish at Katahdin this year.  Tuesday morning, 19 May, I checked my Facebook and read that No Regrets was in the Shenandoah, not too far from where we were staying in Harrisonburg.  Mom and I decided to show our fellow hiker a little support and headed out to deliver some Trail Magic in the form of Fried Chicken, Potatoe Salad, spinach dip and chips, Little Debbie Moon Pies, Coke and Orange Soda.  It was great to see No Regrets and pass along a little trail karma to him and some other lucky fellow hikers.  We hiked in 0.7 mile to deliver the goodies to a very appreciative crowd at the Blackrock Hut.

Not only did we get to give some Trail Magic, but Hendo received some as well.  Waiting for me upon our return from Trial Days was a beautiful new knife.  Handmade by my amazing Airborne brother Kevin Winter in Alaska.  Thank you Kevin I will carrying it proudly.

Wednesday we dropped off Tortuga and RHOTRA at US 60 and they continued their Round About Thru-hike of the AT.  We had such a blast with them at Trail Days and Hardcore Trail Maintenance.
