	Do you have any reasons why thru-hikers should not pay the same fees,
besides the cost?

	There's any number of activities I cannot participate in due to the

determine our fate. There must be no limit on the range of temperate
discussion, no limits on thought. No subject must be taboo. No censor
must preside at our assemblies.
