Welcome to the PCT mailing list.
PCT-L is an unmoderated list that provides a forum
for free-flowing exchange of information, opinions
and comments concerning the Pacific Crest National
Scenic Trail. This might include topics such as
hiking or riding the trail, trail maintenance,
trail conditions, trail threats, etc.

There are two versions of this list, PCT-L and
PCT-L-Digest. If you subscribe to the digest
version, you will receive one post each day that

will result in duplicate mailings.

You may not use addresses obtained from this list
to harass others or send them offensive, abusive
or commercial e-mail. If we are informed, or

lists and possibly reported to his site
If you use a "vacation" program, make sure that
it is smart enough to avoid sending messages to
the mailing lists or to users who post to the
mailing list. We try to protect the list against
stuff like this, but please.
If you include quoted material from a previous,

they are following the thread, they need nothing
more than the bare minimum text to keep the flow
