1726.8 total miles
Motivated by free beer, meeting a friend and a town stop, the miles flew by.
I didn’t stop at Callahan’s in 2009. This time I did and I was rewarded with a free beer. All thru hikers get one. I told the people at the front desk that I was going into Ashland. I drank my beer with Beacon and then was told that the owner was driving into town and would give me a ride. Cool. Way better than hitching.
I met my friend Joy at the Co-op. Then we drove to her straw bale house. Such an awesome place. Beer, shower, great food, wine and talk……
Sleeping in a bed…..
I went to college in Ashland, and we went to Callahan’s every time we wanted to pig out. So happy to hear you are doing well!
You will love stopping there when you hike the trail.
