Just Passin' Thru : A Vintage Store, the Appalachian Trail, and a Cast of Unforgettable Characters
Deep in the Georgia woods, the vintage Mountain Crossings Store sets the stage for zany characters, comedy, and drama. Almost two thousand hikers each year attempt to walk the Appalachian Trail from south to north. Only one in ten will finish the trail's 2,178 miles, but almost all of them-with the help of experience, courage, luck, or madness-will get as far as Mountain Crossings, the small outfitter shop that sits astride the trail outside of Blairsville, Georgia. And they will have dealings there with Winton Porter, the shop's proprietor since 2001. In Just Passin' Thru, his first book, Porter tells the story of this historic trading post and sketches some of the memorable souls who have passed through it-looking for gear or a place to sleep, coffee or gossip, souvenirs or advice-in the years of his tenure.
