    Post MAKE L.Wolf a Trail Legend

    Lone Wolf doesn't want to be a trail legend, but folks seem to want to make it happen against his will.

    How about you?

    Unlike some, he's not even a legend in his own mind so why should he be in ours. Besides, a legend can have a positive or negative conotation. Where would he fit in?

    Nah ...it's gotta be the Trail Legend thing.

    There are no honorary titles for the one you mentioned.

    Oh, let me add that it requires greater than 50% to award the title. If the other three answers combined are greater than 50%, he don't get the title

    Nope. Those that really know me, know better. I'm just blue-blazing hiker trash.

    Why make him a legend? I am in favor of giving people the title of 'legend', but that is reserved for people whose story precedes them. Prior to my involvement in the hiking community, I had heard of Shaffer, Gatewood, and Irwin. Their achievements are known beyond the hiking community (and I'm sure there are others!) and spoken of with a reverence and awe. I hope to meet L Wolf on my upcoming thru hike. I could only hope to come close to the achievements I have heard of (16,000 trail miles?, friend to the trail, diligent trail advocate to name but a few). Now that I have a vague idea of who he is, I, personally, am in favor of legendary status, but until his story permeates the outside world, I fear he may only be legendary to those who truly know him.

    It's your poll, but don't you think 1 & 2 could be combined?

    Not that the poll is leaning in any particular direction Nevertheless, even though LW's self description is probably accurate, he should be admitted into the AT Hall of Fame and made to give a speech before many.
    How many more of our soldiers must die in Iraq?
