I finally met Meander after seeing him helping hikers the past few years at Harts Pass, 30 miles from the Canadian border on the Pacific Crest Trail.

This was a chance meeting while I was volunteering for the PCTA replacing the Northern Terminus at the border. We stepped up the hill in the clearing of the 49th parallel and sat on a log to chat.

Meander thru hiked the PCT in 2013. This sparked a passion for helping future hikers either starting a southbound journey or finishing the trail. He especially enjoys hikers from other countries since he grew up in Europe.

At the end of every season Meander has been hiking to the border and retrieving the years log book. He mails it to Jack Haskel with the PCTA and places a new one for the next years hikers.

It was on Facebook that Meander first heard about thru hiker Andy “Astro” Lyon, who hiked in 2012 after being diagnosed with terminal cancer. With assistance he finished a life goal and shortly after he passed away. This story meant a lot to Meander because he had cancer during his thru hike also.
