    Default Hostel in 2013ish

    Hi I think I hiked this year from harpers ferry to Georgia. On the way, maybe in Tenn or Virginia I stayed at a hostel that was a big shed behind a house. It had Varios tools for cleaning deer and mounted deer and other animals on the wall of the garage. It was very big and it still looked like a work shop of some type. There was a shower and you could do laundry in the house. It was donation based. I think you had to almost do bouldering to get there coming from the north. It was an oldish man 50s or 60s and his son I think. He gave rides to get groceries and talked about handling snakes to relocate them. It may have been close to train tracks. Anyone remember where this was?????

    At least in part, this sounds like 4 Pinesómy least favorite hostel stay. But some like it.

    About a half mile south from where trail crosses VA 624 near Catawba. Just north of Dragonís Tooth.

    I wouldn't consider it a shed but is this it? The closest thing to bouldering in virginia would be dragons tooth, just south a couple miles from 4 pines hostel
