Say, I am really sorry that you took my note seriously.  This was just a
joke.  As far as I know there isn't a fee for hiking the PCT.  Notice the
bogus address:  North Route (that's the way it goes!), Campo, CA (that's
where it starts!) 90210 (that's Beverly Hills, I believe!)

Sorry for playing a joke on the innocent, but I just couldn't help myself.
