[Cdt-l] Helping out a Trail Angel

Here’s a pitch for an angel.  Sam Hughes’ truck broke down two weeks ago
taking Why Not, Elinor and I to the Crazy Cook start of the CDT.  He’s gone
to quite an expense to get hauled out of the bush and replace a fuel pump
mounted in the gas tank.  He’s a bit down about continuing his taxi
service/trail angeling for next year, and at 81, that may be the best thing
for him, at least his daughter would be much happier if he quit.

Given all the years of keeping up with 3 water caches and nearly 30 miles
of rough road each way to get us to the monument, I’m making a pitch to
help him out.  He’s not well off, and could use any spare change you’ve
got, $5, $10, $20 or more would be great.  PCT hikers have been highly
successful at helping out angels when they needed it, so let’s see what the
CDT can do.

If you’ve hiked the CDT, or ever thought of hiking it, or just follow
blogs, consider sending Sam a bit of cash or a check and make a note that
it’s to help with his truck.  Send to:  Sam Hughes, Hachita NM, 88040.

On another note, we rebuilt 16 fallen cairns in the Big Hatchets.  Man
that’s gorgeous country.

Shroomer, Why Not and Elinor
