    Is the outfitter on the other end of town near Dot's (or where Dot's was) still open too?
    The older I get, the faster I hiked.

    Great place! The fella there sewed my hipbelt when it really needed it,refused payment for that. We had bought some stuff we needed,but not enough for him to deal with my stinky pack for free. Will never forget his kindness.

    They kept my violin safe while I was hiking in that area...above and beyond as far as I'm concerned.

    Thank you! I have visited Damascus during section hikes. Mt. Rogers Outfitter was always an interesting and helpful place to go. Taking someone through Damascus who would enjoy seeing what an outfitter looks like. Glad it is still there, although in a new spot. We will stop in!
