I think that you just made Jim's point. You have not walked the walk, so it is YOU who don't understand.

After  a month or two of walking, your viewpoint changes. A series of two week hikes spread over a few years to compelete the PCT does not provide the same change to your outlook and your soul as a through hike does.

You cary an extra 3# if you want to. I'll do something different. 

The only problem, as I see it, is people like you always want to legislate others around you into doing things your way.
Hike your own hike.
