    Probably depends on the hiker :-)

    As for overall contributions to conservation, hunters are clearly forced to contribute a great deal of money in addition to that which they give freely.

    Here is a list of states that allow turkey hunting with a rifle. Not sure if it is accurate, but it affirms that Missouri is one of them.

    Google tells me that Missouri is one of the state where you can hunt a turkey with a rifle. Could be the hiker was on the other side of the bird, and the hunter did not think about the lack of a...

    Are you familiar with the AMC, and their shuttle?

    Excellent point.

    FWIW, I seldom see families with kids at the AMC tent sites. Not sure if money is the big driver on that, but it could play a factor.

    I am confused by the timeline.

    The killer was found competent to stand for a trial last summer. The trial date was set for this past January, but was then rescheduled for July.

    Thanks for the research!

    I have never hiked the MSG, but just mailed away for the guidebook and map on Monday.

    That said, I have hiked Monandnock many scores of times.

    H

    It is uncommon — rare even.

    But not so very rare that we can ignore it when making our choices.

    Like whether or not the major inconvenience of pressing assault charges really matters.

    Perhaps those alleged victims’ decision not to press charges was driven by the near universal (but false) belief that murder is so uncommon on the AT, their failing to press charges would not present...

    Excellent podcast series from a retired NH Fish and Game Lt.

    Among their many responsibilities NHF&G leads search and rescue along the AT (and beyond) in NH.

    My unscientific conclusion after attending a few ALDHA gatherings is that “thinness” is not a problem among thru hiker alumni.

    One good thing that could come out of this would be if the ATC stopped recognizing any individual hikers for good.

    They could sell certificates “suitable for framing”, of course.

    Oh how I miss the good old days.

    Three pages used to be just a warm up.

    And missing the anticipation of seeing Jack Tarlin weigh in to a thread like this.

    Good memories there.

    You could be right that a sober thru hiker is highly unlikely to start a fire with their camp stove.

    That said, so long as motel policy or law is in place, other guests have (IMHO) an absolute...

    Coming down that blue blaze from the other direction can make for a scary crossing. Just throw...
