    So its pretty limiting if thats a necessity .
    But that also explains AT popularity with many
    not a ncessity at all. i hike other places where there are no shelters. i stay in my tent on the AT when it makes sense to as far as daily mileage and so forth. but if it's there, i generally take it

    Because it dishonors the intent of the trail angel.

    True, thru hikers are no more entitled or deserving than the day hiker, but if I was a day hiker and saw a sign that said, “for thru hikers”, I would feel like I was stealing.

    My sentiment exactly... your not taking from the "entitled" thru hikers. Rather, your taking from the trail angels who left something for thru hikers, not section hikers.

    Helping yourself to what's not for you is the epitome of entitlement.
