I have a different take on it - 

If one is "thruhiking", then one must be a "thruhiker". Otherwise one would not be thruhiking. 

When one finishes, then one is technically an "ex-thruhiker".  

Unless, like me, one's mind never leaves the Trail. In which case, one is always a thruhiker.  


But keep in mind that, as one of my co-workers (for 25 years) once said - I'm different.  :)

Of course, YMMV.  


All these complicated discussions are gonna give me a headache. 


Walk softly,
