Trail Magic

on 12 April 2009

So yesterday after 15 miles I came across a mysterious blue tent in
the middle of nowhere, NC. Every once in awhile on the AT you come
across random acts of kindness called "trail magic" and let me tell
you, I doubt this will be matched. I ate 4 veggie dogs as soon as I
got there but the big deal was the next morning. Not only did they
cook up massive omelets but gave us chai, juice, fruit, baked goods,
candy, lip balm, and even professional massages. It was amazing and
perfect because it was at the base of the first 5000 ct mountain on
the AT. Additional photos will be posted on under the
trail names repeat and tarheel.

Sounds like you have been getting some good food lately. The "trail magic" is great - what a nice gesture! Are the shin splints better - must be to be able to walk 15 miles. Hopefully the weather has improved. Happy Easter and our thoughts are with you.

Mr. DeVoe,

Met you at the Trail Magic Breakfast at Deep Gap while hiking with my buddy Rick. The photo from the top of Standing Indian turned out great!

I've shown your blog to my 10 year old son. So, we'll be following your progress on the trail.

Good luck and stay healthy,
