    Good grief. This is Alice in Wonderland. It's just a simple rule of etiquette and that is what the OP asked about. I'll let you guys move back to trolling the dancing banana. I'm out of here and in a...

    Yup. It is just walking ... until you are run over by a moron powering downhill on a narrow trail. It is not an issue for you, Caleb, FreeGoldRush, etc. Good for you. But your efforts to belittle and...

    So idyllic! I wish I could live in your "world". I hiked SOBO from SNP to Springer starting April 6 this year. I and my hiking partner were essentially run off the trail almost every day. Most hikers...

    I think his plan is HF to NY in April/May. But you are correct that HF to NY in June/July would be brutally hot and dry.

    You just described a game of "chicken". Your "reality" is a far cry from mine. What other rules of etiquette can we throw out?

    Kudos to you for planning an unconventional hike. The first section will result in cold weather and I assume you are aware of that since you remarked you will be able to do short stints and tailor...

    I thought this post was by "Lone Wolf", but in truth it must be from "Mountain Goat".

    My point is that there are places on the A.T. where right of way is inconsequential: level, wide trails or...

    To my way of thinking it is all about momentum. Yes, it is easier to stop when going uphill, but it is also much harder to get going again. Like I stated, if you are in the directional minority,...

    I echo Tipi Walter's sentiments regarding categorizing hikers, though sometimes I feel in the minority. Heck, I even saw animosity between SOBOs and NOBOs. Some people just need to give it a rest.

    Keep in mind choosing a pack that can handle a bear canister if you plan to hike anymore of the A.T. I wish I had done that before I began my thru hike.

    Personally, I would rather err on the side...

    Well said!

    Not sure who Chris "Hawk" Mains is, but I would argue that the A.T. is a hiking trail, not a climbing route. When some of these steep trails were first laid out, there were roots and...

    Amen.

    Too many of us embrace the HYOH concept as meaning "mind your own business". Standing aside to allow a handful of irresponsible or under educated hikers degrade the trail results bad...

    Where does this line of thinking come from? I see it over and over on this board. Someone will post a valid complaint and others will proclaim that the person should just ignore it. Tipi Walter has...

    The bears I have seen at night have had brilliant green retinal reflections. Though I am not a veterinary ophthalmologist, I would question the validity of this video if and when you do find it.
