I am..........very disappointed by some of the many "attitudes" I have 
observed on this list.  Sheesh, if folk are this testy over the internet, 
what are they like in real life?  Why would I want to enter a sport where 
the interpersonal relationships are so .......... poor.  Do I want to be on 
the trail with individuals who might consider me an obstacle to over come or 
a burden to bear?  What if I made a mistake?  A tactical error?  A trail 
etiquette faux pa?  Me thinks someone would say "off with her head".  If I 
were to do a 100, I would hope that the "spirit of the sport" would be 
better than the spirit of cyberspace seen here.

As one of those "testy" folks, let me assure you that out on that
100-mile trail you will find all of the support, encouragement and
camaraderie that you could ever hope for.

Yep, some of us (moi?) will argue over just about anything ...
sometimes passionately.  And we'll be there for anyone on the trail
who needs help, or just an encouraging word.
