[pct-l] The PCT - Why so many lists?

Five years+ ago, Ryan (the kind soul who hosts the backcountry.net lists of AT-L, PCT-L, CDT-L, etc.) had online forums.

They were hardly used for whatever reason. Ryan took them down.

Five years later, forums seems to be more popular than list servs.

But, it is a lot of work to get a forum up and running AND active. 

Adventureonthepct.com is a nice little site. Just not used much.

Then again, perhaps us Westerners are a bit more free spirited than Easterners and don't want a central repository for everything? :)

(So typed this guy from the Northeast orginally...)

In all seriousness, I am not sure why there are so many lists.  I do know an on-line type forum was tried for the XYZ-L lists and they were not popular at the time.

The true harvest of my life is intangible.... a little stardust 
caught, a portion of the rainbow I have clutched
