This is true. The PCT is not a wilderness experience.
If I want a completely solitary experience, I head into the San
Rafael, Dick Smith, Matillija or Sespe Wilderness.
I found the pole noise to be useful. I don't like startling people as
I approach. So I will make a little extra noise with the poles to
gently wake them from their reverie before I say hello.
As for replacing tips, I simply put the new tip over the old one.
