    When I hike alone, I greet heartily every hiker I come into contact with. Why? Just being nice? Partly yes. But I also want to gauge their reply to me. If they do not reply or can't look me in...

    I disagree. The back to back combo of Sassafras and Justus was an ass kicker. They pussified another section of the Georgia trail. The Duncan Ridge Trail is also being rerouted to an easier...
