I have to say I just came back from an absolute wonderful weekend road trip with my Dad!
As we were heading to the NJ state high point, somewhere in PA, we happened to see a guy standing on the side of the road wearing a backpack and holding a cardboard sign– all I saw on the sign was a stacked A T written in black sharpie— the famed symbol for the APPALACHIAN TRAIL! I yelled for my dad to stop!! “He’s an Appalachian trail hiker! Should we give him a lift??” My dad quickly replied “SURE!” So I hopped out and flagged him over.
