[at-l] R 'n R's Apology For Traditionalism

I read R&R's statement and see no necessary connection at all between a
"socializing hike" and weekend or section hikes, or lunchtime strolls, for
that matter. For that matter, the lunchtime stroll may be held to much
*more* of a high standard, to where place and time *matter,* and to where
company does *not*. "Socializing," on the other hand, should *not* matter
where it is done -- whether on the AT or on a city street (or *HELLO* on
the internet). But if there's no necessary connection between the AT and a
desire to socialize, then take the socialization off the trail.
(not making much of a dent in the email yet....)
