    Default Rusty says hi...

    Many long-time members of White Blaze may know, or know of, "Rusty." He operated a very rustic mountain hiker hostel called Hard Time Hollow near Love, VA just off the BRP for over two decades. No frills (or electric, phone, or indoor water!) back in the day when HTH was a can't-miss stop for many thru-hikers.

    He's been out of the hiker scene for awhile and no longer operates a hostel but after not seeing him for nine years I stopped in to say hi today. Didn't even know if he was still there, or alive for that matter. He asked me to post this photo of him, 78 years young, and invites old friends to drop by if in the area. He still lives there with his dog Soxx, and in more recent times has spring-fed water piped in, gas-powered lighting, and a very warm woodstove. One of a kind mountain man!
