 I've hesitated to chime in on this simply because I know how a hiker feels to have put in a 20 mile day, exhausted, possibly wet and cold and stumble on what is called trail "majic". When someone of good heartedness leaves some sodas, or even some beer too heavy to be lugging up and down mountains for unsuspecting hikers to enjoy. I think thats great and certainly appreciated. The Trail to many is a spiritual passage, a time to soak up nature and connect to whatever higher presence each individual seeks. I think when people begin to use the trail as a means of soliciting business not only is it illegal but ethically violates what the "Trail is all about". It is my hope that the trail will remain the path of connection to nature and not to corporate madness, I think our country suffers enough from this behavior already. May you all find peace and solitude in the woods!
