Comments: First of all... first person to make a Sunday post. I don't know if that's cool or not on Memorial Day Weekend.

Great day for a hike. Arrived a 6:20. Walking along the first switchback and wouldn't you know it..... Two idiots sleeping in hammocks 5 feet from the trail. Their gear strewn all over the ground below them. Food was left out in the open. No joke. Continued on. Water running on the trail towards the top. Summit. Beautiful view. Spoke with 3 runners attempting the Pemi Loop in a day. The needed our map as they didn't bring one. Wouldn't fit in their ULTRALIGHT vests. Down yonder towards the edge of the lookout there were two youtubers LITTERALY having a photo/video shoot while making and eating breakfast. 3 CAMERAS... TRIPODS...

Hung out for an hour. Then headed out.

On the way down guess who was just getting out of their hammocks? 10:30 a.m. Two fat 20 somethings taking pictures of each other. All the gear was new. So most likely they walked in probably sometime last evening. As they got to the first switchback they realized how fat impedes hiking. So they setup shop. Right where they stopped.

Way too many insecure folks. Bye America.
