    LW, If there is anything we can do to help Nancy or the family, don't hesitate to ask. They've done enough for all of us...

    So many hikers and friends of hikers have passed away in 2016. Hope we don't have to add more to this list this year.

    No offense LW, but if you read the original post it kind of indicates that. I can see you were just just sharing a message from someone else now that I look at it, but the confusion is understandable. Might want to edit the OP.

    Ahh, so sad to hear. I had the good fortune to stay with Jeff and Nancy before my Smokeys section hike in October 2011. I convinced Jeff to run a food resupply up to me at Newfound Gap (for a hefty fee) so I could lighten the load on my decrepit knees. We got comfortable with one another that evening as he showed me his extensive arrowhead collection. He showed up at the Newfound Gap parking lot an hour earlier than we had agreed as he knew I'd be early to arrive, so I only had to wait 8 minutes after a quick 5-mile walk down from the Mt. Collins Shelter. We both got a kick out of that.

    I hope that Nancy is doing well and able to adjust. It is so very sad to lose that sort of vitality, goodness and energy from the world.

    Very sorry to hear this. All the best to Nancy and her daughters as they continue to run The Hike Inn.

    Are they still trying to run the hike inn/shuttle now? If so I would like to support them by staying and using their service. Or is it too soon?

    They are open. I called recently, made reservations (to stay and for shuttle). They never closed, but slowed down for a while.

    Ok Thanks, I thought at first I was being selfish but then thought they need our support?
