	Thru-hikers aren't necessarily interested in the shortest route
possible. The route the CDT takes is, in general, more beautiful country
than the route you suggest.


It is our attitude toward free thought and free expression that will

discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor
must preside at our assemblies.
