I’ve had the pleasure of spending some time with Miss Janet the past few days. She is a local trail celebrity that assists hikers. Miss Janet provides transportation around the area and helps hikers get the things she needs. Her phone rings off the hook and she doesn’t take notes, she just remembers who calls, what they need or where they need to get to, and then makes it happen. She soothes hikers wounded egos, offers advice, helps them problem solve, and mothers them…all at the same time. And she does it all for donations. She has no prices posted and she never asks anyone for money. She just has a donation jar in her car. What an amazing woman…and she tells the best stories. I hope to see her again at trail days.
