I happen to think hiking deserves better than this. I think Brian should have 
at least paid lip service to the fact that it isn't fun to blast thru the 
woods at 30-miles/day. In fact, I think _someone_ should have recognized the 
obvious irony of doing so. 

Just so you realize that you are not alone, Bill, I agree with the above 
points. The rest of your post was, shall we say, a bit blunt and invited 
being bashed, but hey, don't let the bashtards get you down. Ya gotta be 
prepared to take it as well as dish it out
