There's been a lot of discussion lately about the phenomenon of Trail Magic and organized Hiker Feeds and events. Some folks, including some very well-known folks in the hiker community are dead set against it, or at the very least, think there's too much of it.
Your thoughts, please. Is Trail Magic getting out of hand? Is it interfering with or causing damage to anyone's hike? Are today's hikers getting greedy, expectant, and spoiled because there's too much of it? Are critics of today's magic and large hiker feeds raising a legitimate point, or are they merely crabby and jealous because such things didn't exist when they were hiking? Should Trail magic be limited to towns or trailheads, or is it OK anywhere on the Trail?
Any and all comments are welcome.
