 The magic is on the trail. Not in some beer cooler, abandoned trailside furniture, nor in a convenient washing machine.

Everyone's heart is in the right place, truly, but the kickoff, the trail angels, the water caches are killing the trail with kindness. The trail and its "infrastructure" is being overwhelmed and it's starting to collapse. That's what this sounds like.

Reading some journals, and overhearing bits of conversation on the trail, there has lately been some hikers for whom the trail is seemingly an inconvenience, to be tolerated until arrival at the next trail town to party with their peeps. Maybe this is a necessary correction taking place.
Or maybe I'm all wrong.

Curmudgeonly yours,
