Did you ever read anything about Pete Fish and how he used to interact with hikers to educate?

That's a good way to teach people how to be safe on the trail and intervene before a rescue is...

Is there some reason we shouldn't expect people to maybe have a map, perhaps printed from the internet before they tackle a 46er? I do not agree that we should be handing out maps to hikers. If...
