I re-read my message and am wondering what in it somehow made it seem that I regard any aspect of this as 'pathological.' Something about it ticked you off- please explain. Hmmm...I meant in in the context of unconnected groups, I only brought up the bowling metaphor as what seemed to be a transparent end-member simply as an illustration. I have fabulous memories of going out in groups of all sizes (tho mostly with my wife) and some memorable solo ones too. In fact my point was that it is not 'pathological' when strangers decide to share your space, but rather that they register and respond to being in the back country in an entirely different way, and a way that is native and natural to them.
