I think Tim has the same attitude of many we meet.  If treated with  
respect and courtesy, they go out of their way to make our trip wonderful.   If 
treated as servants for our petty needs, they get their hackles up.  A  few 
please and thank you's go a long way on the trail and in life.   CicelyB

I never  hiked the CDT but I have hiked the AT and PCT and its starting 
to look to  me like this fellow, the Big Sandy, may have had an attitude 
to begin  with. He may have invested big bucks thinking that hikers 
passing through  would have plenty to spend, but found the reality is a 
lot of hikers just  arent that well off financially.

So its still an option if you are willing to stay at the Lodge and  pay the 
fee. It saddens me but does not surprise me that someone screwed it up  for 
all the rest. It is one thing to be a trail angel where you feel the call  
and do it because you enjoy the sub-culture or want to give back all the kind  
acts you received on the trail. It baffles me why anyone would think a 
private  business would want to provide a service and not make a reasonable 
profit for  their effort-much less be directly violated for it. You want private 
 enterprise to welcome hikers,much as many do hunters-and if you are going 
to  use them for help then you need to pay for services. I realize some may 
not be  just cheap or tight wads. Maybe you are young and broke-but then you 
should  not be on such a tight schedule-hitch out and sleep in the
>   woods. This all becomes even more important as more people hike the 
CDT-treat  others as you would like to be treated..plastic
