The wind shook the small bunkhouse as the freezing snow fell. Thankfully the wall heater kept us toasty. Ribbit and Goose, AT hikers, decided to wait the storm out. It was a no brained for me. My body could use the rest. We played poker till I had no chips, Then go fish till I had no cards.

Mary, Pastor Ken’s wife stopped by as she was headed to town to run some errands. “Want a ride?” Soon we were at Arby’s and Food lion to get some fruit and salad…20160410_095009Back at the Hostel more hikers showed up to warm up.  Forecast low was 17 degrees….Pushing the limits of our 20 degree sleeping bags…  The hikers were sharing stories of their adventures and it seemed like yesterday I was on the trail.

Hiker midnight came soon as I drifted into dreaming of sunny days ahead.
