These threads are great guys. I've really gotten a lot out of reading through your opinions and experiences.

I would agree that most conflicts can be resolved before you even leave. I always make it a point to have a pre-trip meeting at the trailhead weather its 2 people or 20. Discussing radio frequencies, spotting procedures, and duration between breaks has seemed to make for a more cohesive group.

I have never had any major instances of conflicting interests but have has a few minor events. Usually a quick shout out on the radio takes care of things. I try to use "We" and "us" and "let's" insted of "you" i.e "let's slow it down a bit and try to stay on the trail folks". I'll follow that with a brief conversation with the person in question.

Overall a positive yet firm attitude gets you a long way.
