    I am sorry if the trail has become overcrowded at times, but the traditional rules have served the trail for a long time and there is no reason they still can't. No one has a right to claim a shelter...

    For what is worth, here is what I find objectionable to the concept of thru hikers having special rights to the use of shelters.

    They canceled their reservations and shafted the place they made reservations at. That means they are dishonest and unreliable. I would not put faith in the reliability of those alleged hikers and...

    Morals and moral character are not based on technicalities and written law. So, yes, greedly emptying all the contents of a hiker box into your pack is technically allowed, but that does not make it...

    Get real. The passive live and let live attitude of hikers on the AT has led to the degradation of the trail experience and has become obsolete. There is a big difference between the western trails...

    This should be entertaining, as long as they don't make that baby actually hike. Has anyone got any ideas about diapers? It will be hard teaching that baby to poop in a hole in the ground.
