Andrea and her husband Jerry run the Dinsmores River Haven
A PCT hostel of sorts... they are what we in PCT circles call
They host and help hikers who are traveling along the trail.
This phenomena just floored me when I was walking in 2005.
People you don't know at all, go completely and totally out
of their way to help you... just because you have chosen to walk.
Granted, by the time hikers who started in Mexico reach the Dinsmores
in Washington State... they are a pretty needy bunch.
Thanks to Andrea and Jerry...
who only ask for donations to help cover expenses.
