Switchback replies:  Congratulations!  I am planning the Most Supported PCT record.  Wranglers will cook all my meals and set up my hammock camp each night.  I will say around other hikers things like:
"Gee, I can't eat another piece of hot pizza.  Now we will have to carry it out as garbage."
"Wow, I am so warm in this hammock with these Enlightened Equipment sleeping quilts.  It sure is cold out there for those pilgrim backpackers over there in their ground tents."
"I think I will have fresh Black Diamond hot buttered popcorn tonight for a snack."
"Wow, it looks like a big rain front is moving in for the next several days.  I guess I will ride until the weather passes.  And then continue this vacation walk."
"Seems like this walk is too easy.  I think I will yo-yo the trail."
