### 'Wow' there, Bruce. I don't think the Appalachian
Trail Corporation could've put any better than you
just did, what the people who are actually using the
trail *do* *not* want. The CDT is *not* the AT; it's
not a PCT; the CDT is unique, fragile, and deserving
of preservation *exactly* as it is. Yet another
McTrail is NOT desirable. Count my vote with
fiddlehead's comment below.
