Re: [at-l] Re: at-l-gallon jugs of water

<< I was hiking a section N from Bear Mt NY in Sept. A few
mountains N of RPH shelter, I got to the top of the mountain and
found 2 big jugs of water (5 gallons each I believe). And there was
a sign that said "Supermarket Springs". >>
Yes, I came upon those same jugs of water on a very hot day. I inquired
about the water later on with a couple of trail maintainers at the next
shelter. It seems there is a house up there on that mountain, close to the
trail (although I didn't see it) in which live a couple of former AT hikers
who know the value of cold water in a place like that. They buy the water
and place it on the trail for hikers. Sorry I don't know their names.
God love 'em.
