I tried calling Tim yesterday, but got his answering sevice. No return call yet.  


No surprise about the answer - he's been hassled for the last five years or more 

by hikers who seem to think they're something special and have forgotten the 

meaning of the words courtesy and respect.  


We used Big Sandy for both of our thrus.  Now we won't have that option for the next 

one. In '99 he was enthusiastic and cooperative.  By 2006, he'd been burned too many 

times by hikers who demanded maximum service for minimum (zero???) cost.  And now 

some a$$---e has given him good reason to cut off service.  


Sorry, gang - but I'm on his side.   He doesn't get paid enough to put up with the crap 

that some (although not all ) hikers give him.  


So - who's gonna be the one to screw up the deal at Benchmark?
