Pooh Corner


Again in 2011, Bill and Molly Person will be providing free hospitality, in
their home, for Pacific Crest Trail thru-hikers at the Donner Summit (old
hi-way 40) area just north of Lake Tahoe. We live about four miles from the
PCT and will pick up and deliver hikers from the trail. Just call us at 530-563-6867.

Pooh Corner receives food drops, provides beds, meals, showers, laundry,
etc. We also make airport runs for significant others and anything else we
can to support thru hikers in their quests. Our cabin faces on Donner Lake
and provides swimming boating, etc. or just plain loafing.

In 2011, Molly and I will be open from June 20 through the night of July 24.
Then we are off to celebrate our grandson's birthday.

Sorry, we do not allow alcoholic beverages, tobacco or illegal substances at
Pooh Corner.

Mail to Truckee is VERY slow!!! Priority mail usually takes six days or
more to reach us. We pick up mail once a day in the early afternoon. We
mail outgoing mail for hikers departing on Saturday and Sunday only.

Bill hiked the AT in 96 (Pooh, SillyOldBear) and welcomes the chance to repay a little of the hospitality I received.  Here is our contact information.
