    Also most of the customers at the Doyle are just brain dead, not actually dead.

    when they leave you with upgraded electrics and green systems requireing upkeep, they leave you with moneys knowing you were poor at the start and the finnish. and a common bunkroom or coed dorm or male female bunk rooms will certinly be concidered. and vicky and pat are the kind who will charge hikers as little as they can anyway. and if they have non hiker rooms makeing biger money then it may afford the price saveings to hikers. and hikers will have a choice and all in all it will be good. they allways do a comunity project and that can help alot of folks. this is a thing pat and vicky need and deservr and i for one support it.

    They should makeover a disabled vets home, not a private business. Just my opinion and you know what they say about those.

    Good for Vicky and Pat. This is a business venture for them, and I wish them well.

    The character and essence of the place will definitely be forever changed, and hikers will more than likely take a back seat.

    Best wishes.

    back seats are bigger and better and you can fool around.

    asume the doyal is made over. the national attention causes vicky and pat to become fully solvent and even profitable. now assume vicky loweres the cost to hikers based on her generosity and ability. assume further that perspective hiking familys visit the now respectable doyal for the chance to meet hikers. now imagine a graded trail somewhere near where all can acces our trail at duncannon. further imagine new streetposts with banners anouncing events and an artists community springing up with cafes and nightlife. now picture duncannon as an ashville of the north. i see it all.

    I can just see it now. "and this will be your room Matty" as Mathewski is filmed walking wide eyed into the newly renovated room 23, complete with bacon murals done completely in crayon and Pom bottles turned into lighting fixtures."When we first heard of little Matty's story we knew we had to do something. It seems that whenever he goes out in public he attracts stares and ridicule. The Doyle was one of the last remaining establishments that actually welcomes, rather than fears his patronage. We had to do something to save such an important, historic landmark. It makes my heart warm knowing Matty and his ilk will now always have a place to gather away from the prying eyes of an ununderstanding public."

    i see it too. "when we first heard of matthewski and room 23 we knew we had a problem" "with all the renovations would we be able to save the most historic aspects of this room?" "so we came up with this,.."
    blindfolded matthewski is led to the now fully restored door of room 23. removing his blindfold he despairs, the sign on the door reads"broom closet." matthewski lowers his head. turning to desend the now wonderfull grand winding staircase and make a quiet exit, and thinking his friends mean for such a prank,...a single tear falls from his eye.thaughts of rm 23 flash before him. no more will he sleep on the floor under the window listening to jack snor while doves cry....
    as he turns the stairs and looks back one final time at the room he loved, the door has been opened and a bright light as if from skylights spills from the room. running back he pushes the door open and to his amazement...

    Correct, by all reports, Hikers are in desperate want. Now, I would write if I had ever heard of the place, but I will definetly want to see it on TV one sunday night... can somebody explain the whole room 23 thing?
    Important Notice:

    Due to recent budget cuts, the light at the end of the tunnel has been turned off.

    We apologize for the inconvenience.

    Sincerely,
    The Government
