I now know what drives and motivates the countless “trail angels” who help Appalachian Trail thru-hikers each year.  They are Wesleyans, in action if not in belief.  How do I know this?  Having just read this quote by John Wesley I can’t think of any group of people  who match this description:

“Do all the good you can,
By all the means you can,
In all the ways you can,
In all the places you can,
At all the times you can,
To all the people you can,
As long as ever you can.”
— John Wesley

That seems to sum up what “trail angels” are about these days!  God bless ’em!
