Many good questions. One that looms for me is that was there even a
definitive definition for "purist" in '48? If no one has done it before how
do you define it?
I think the whole "purist" argument is, to put it politely, BS. 20-20
hindsight applied after the fact...
I'd love to see a discussion between the author of this "documentation" and
the guy that argued for the 'Boy Scout Troop' thru-hike... it might be a
hoot, but I suspect I'd need a airsickness bag :-)

existed in 1948?>>
