    My first post said nothing negative, it asked for clarification of why "birchy" was proud on his Facebook page that a "vet" stayed there free. Now you say it was supposed to be half rate.
    Now I may be negative when I ask you to clarify for us who you are? Are you the owner or the hostel? Are you "birchy's" wife or mother?
    In earlier post you acted like you were the proud mother of a hiker that had stayed at the hostel, and you would recommend it to anyone. Now you call the shots the hostel.
    You seem to think any questions are an insult to you.
    The trouble I have with campfires are the folks that carry a bottle in one hand and a Bible in the other.
    You never know which one is talking.

    First, I was proud to have a vet, or any vet stay here, and yes, it is free, but not for two weeks. Once he decided to hang around I made it clear that he pays, works for stay, or a bit of both. Now I'm not going to get into a debate with you about what is what, who is who, or why for any of the later. All vet's are welcome here for 1 or 2 nights free, but when a drifter rolls in pretending to be a hiker, and works me for 2 weeks food and lodging. I HAVE A RIGHT TO ALERT OTHERS TO THIS SCAM.... THAT WAS THE PURPOSE OF THE POST. Now some people have turned a simple cautionary post into a debate about who is right and who is wrong. I was in the wrong, because I trusted a man for his word... which where I come from is as good as money, gold, or anything else. Stop nit picking everything.

    He is of course, innocent unless proven guilty.

    And hikers need to know their rights if they have cops called on them for anything, as I once had happen in New Jersey, hitching to get back to my car.

    All Constitutional rights apply 24 hours a day without exception.

    I've never stayed in a hostel that provides booze, guess I'm missing the good ones.

    Uhhh, this ain't a court of law. It is a court of public opinion.

    Sounds like a plan! But it wont be til next weekend. I'm allowed to hike tomorrow and Monday, but I cant go over two miles. My PT said to take it easy and not turn a 6 week problem into a 6 month problem!

    I walked out to the mailbox this afternoon. The heat index is 105. I needed a snow cone once I got inside.

    WORD FROM HIKERS IN DUNCANNON SAY he is right behind them so should be in Duncannon tonight or tomorrow. Vicki at the Doyle says her plan is to tell him to keep hiking.

    I hope he's gone thru by the time the hiker feed starts. You know, he sounds like the type that might hang around for a free meal.

    Birchy,

    you did the right thing letting everyone know that this guy is out there. Word of what he did will follow him up the trail. Everyone will be on the lookout for him.

    40+ years later and vets are still cryin' about being called names and spit on? y'all make it sound like EVERY one of hundreds of thousands of GIs came back met throngs of hippies everywhere they went spittin' on them and stuff. any Marine worth their salt woulda kicked said hippy's ass with extreme predjudice. the draft was the problem. only about 1000 Marines were drafted and they went specialized units like Forced RECON and such to kill Charlie. Marines ain't whiners. Semper Fi

    what kind of vet picks a trail name like "papa smurf"? You would think he would pick a more military sounding name.
