    That was sure worth a chuckle! You accuse me of being opinionated and then spout off a line like this. The perfect reason I have the proverb in my signature line. Good luck to you on your hike. ...

    I've never felt unwanted or unappreciated in any trail town on either the AT or PCT. I have seen plenty of other hikers who were! It's all about how you act and treat others.

    Totally agree Datto! I recall saying almost every day "the PCT is suppose to be easier"! It's a different experience than the AT and something every addicted hiker should experience.
