Carol Peace Robins, "Books in Brief: Walking to Vermont," The New York Times, April 11, 2004
During the nine-month hiking season, he distributes "trail magic" - free water, food, and other goodies - just about every day to through-hikers traversing New Jersey as they attempt to walk the entire 2,172-mile Appalachian Trail.
He sweeps out trail-side shelters and leaves behind cookies, hard candy, foot powder, Advil, and Band-Aids.
He fills gallon jugs with water and leaves them on stretches of the trail where water is otherwise hard to come by.
He hands out business cards and tells hikers that if they need anything, anything at all, call.
