GreyOwl typed: The hiking community has a number of icons... >snip< ... they
have left behind extensive writings that a number of people try to interpret
their belief the "One and True Belief."
Someone who has actually read the recent biography of MacKaye reported:
"Anyone who reads simply to find evidence of support for their preconceived
notions probably can do so, regardless of what those notions may be."
But that probably won't stop someone from quoting MacKaye and getting all
rightous on you for your post, GreyOwl.
Preaching that MacKaye is the be-all end-all of the Appalachian Trail is
just plain silly, and nothing more.
