Zip Line...

While this isn't part of the Official AT, stopping at The Captain's house is tradition.

The trail runs past his home, just on the other side of the river. Instead of building a bridge to allow hikers access to his property, The Captain constructed a zip line!

Hikers are welcome to tent in his back yard or help themselves to free cold sodas, which are found in a mini fridge on the porch.

I stopped into The Captain's house yesterday and loved my ride on the zip line, both going and coming (back to the trail).

Hiking the AT is a unique experience and thankfully trail angels, like The Captain, help hikers remember just how lucky we are to be a part of it.

Happy Trails...
