    You will either love the social aspect of a shelter or the seclusion and freedom of a tent, possibly both depending on the day. I have a strong preference towards tenting but neither is really better than the other, both are perfectly good options.

    I used to use a Eureka tent for hiking the trial that was very similar to the grand mesa, still have it and I can set it up in about a minute if I'm in a hurry. One SoBo joked that it must be a popup tent when he watched me set it up, so if 5 min is an issue then just work on speed, the trail will provide plenty of practice.
    Colorless green ideas sleep furiously.

    I'm a hammock hanger and plan on swinging as much as possible even if it means setting up in the rain or waiting on a shelter to fill up.

    I am done with shelters, too skeevy. Stayed in one during a blizzard by Max Patch, wish that I had pitched my tent instead, would be a been a LOT warmer than night.

    I often hang out at the shelter, take advantage of sitting at the picnic table ............... pitch my tent a ways off, use privy, socialize etc. Having said this, in that I do not cook anymore I much prefer camping on the top of a mountain with a great view.

    Along the trail, and particularly thanks to the Nora virus, I started to tent more and more (and never got Nora). I found I liked having my own sleeping space and slept much better, but would hang out at shelters for the social aspect.

    The exceptions would be bad weather, or bad weather expected as I don't want to have to pack a wet tent, or just a superior shelter situation and/or inferior tenting options (such as one shelter that is on a bald on top of a mountain which is fully enclosed - 4 walls and a door, the winds up there can rip a tent apart.)

    +1 to hanging out at the shelter but sleeping away from it! In '11 I was warmer in my tent. Next spring I will be snug in my hammock!

    +1. I'll hang out at the shelters, but I plan to hang by myself.

    I'd hike by the shelters, swap info, check on people I (sorta) met. Too many people spreading out too much gear to be able to make meals, so I'd eat elsewhere. I tented close to some, but not real often. If the tent area had flattish tent areas about 50+ yards away, I'd tent.

    If the shelter was more than .4 miles away from the trail, I'd just walk by.

    Saw too much non-LNT type behavior as well, esp. in the water holes.

    Smokies: had to stay, but in March, not too crowded. I got a wall spot, as I either was the first to get to an empty shelter or it was too early for others to stop.

    Shelter space is at a premium early in the season when everyone is bunched up. There is always a group who like shelters and quickly learn that to score space, they have to leave early and then stop early at the next shelter. If you arrive at a shelter much past noon, it will probably be full already. If it is raining, some won't even leave the shelter or those who might have been in a tent that night will move into the shelter instead of moving on.

    So, unless you become one of the shelter hoppers, chances are good you'll spend most of your nights in the tent near the shelter. The situation will slowly change as you get farther north and the bubble becomes more spread out and there are fewer of you as others drop out. Eventually you will likely start to spend more nights in shelters then in your tent. The exception will be when a camp group shows up and takes over the shelter or someone you know you don't want to sleep next to shows up.

    So, what if EVERYONE hung at the shelters but then tented or hung a hammock, what would the mice do for fun at night?

    Another vote here for socializing at the shelter then tenting elsewhere, I like everything about shelters except sleeping in them. Not crazy about the mice running around and there's something about snoring that seems to keep me up more than any other night noise. Now I do quite enjoy using the shelters for weekend snowshoe outings around this part of VT once the hard winter sets in, no more mice and temps around zero really put a dent in the crowds.

If you arrive at a shelter much past noon, it will probably be full already. If it is raining, some won't even leave the shelter or those who might have been in a tent that night will move into the shelter instead of moving on.

    So, unless you become one of the shelter hoppers, chances are good you'll spend most of your nights in the tent near the shelter. The situation will slowly change as you get farther north and the bubble becomes more spread out and there are fewer of you as others drop out. Eventually you will likely start to spend more nights in shelters then in your tent. The exception will be when a camp group shows up and takes over the shelter or someone you know you don't want to sleep next to shows up.
    Its humorous to watch people literally race to the next shelter to try to get a spot, especially if its a 6 person. Then they settle for pitching tent on horrible sloped ground nearby. When half mile away is a nice level campsite. Eventually smart ones learn that "gap " means a flat area to camp.

    For my thru hike this year I only stayed in 3 shelters and I regretted all 3. Loved being in my tent. I am an early riser, 430am so I didnt have to worry about disturbing anyone, my gear was easy to find, no snoring, I could get up for a pee or use piss bottle without disturbing anyone. Always had breakfast bed.

    For the most part, me & the wife will be tenting it. Shelters are nice from time to time, but nothing beats the personal space of your tent. Even if there are two of us.
