Forgive me for being a trail newb.. But before i started developing planhike.com’s trail angel list and then transfered the list to trailangellist.org.. Was there a trail angel list? I swear i saw one once! But could never refind it.. Maybe it was the pct resupply list at the pcta.org im thinking i saw…
Its crazy to me how I go out there on that hike and come back in a total mental dissaray and decide to launch trailangellist.org… I’m in disbelief right now the site name was even available and that I thought to put it together.. It was the busiest page on planhike.com so.. I thought how can I make it better SEO wise and the rest is history I guess…. I build my list from scratch and now people are added only when they request it.. I hope it helps… Hundy
Eric B. Fuller, Hundy (That’s Me) Just Launched TrailAngelList.org to help Hikers Find Trail Angels.
Hiking on backcountry trails helps many people re-connect with nature and with places within themselves that get obscured in the daily hustle and bustle. A few days in the solitude of the trail re-grounds them and helps preserve their mental health.
For people battling mental illness, however, the path to mental health is rarely so simple. Mental illness affects 1 out of 4 families in the United States, leaving those who suffer from it and their families searching for answers, cures and treatments that will allow them to experience the simple joy of living.
In distributing its net proceeds, HIKE for Mental Health will direct
For 2012 HIKE for Mental Health has selected The Brain & Behavior Research Foundation as its principal beneficiary. Support for wilderness trails will be directed to the New York-New Jersey Trail Conference. These organizations are top-notch, well-run nonprofit groups that, like HIKE for Mental Health, know how to get the most bang for their buck.
