Returning from thp, on a VFR flight plan, announced 10 miles northwest of rawlins for TA an WX advisory. Unicom replied with weather advisory. I announced mid field entry forecast downwind for runway 22. ASOS test announced 230 degrees -- 250 degrees at 18g34. I announced left downwind runway 22 full stop rawlins, announced left base runway 22 full stop rawlins at touchdown unicom announced aircraft back taxiing runway 22 aircraft on short final for landing. That was the first indication I had of another aircraft movement at the airport. The aircraft stopped at about 5000 ft from the approach end of runway 22. My completed landing roll to a stop at 3000 ft from the approach end or runway 22. However, this placed my aircraft beyond the crosswind runway intersection. I continued to taxi towards the next taxiway turn out along the extreme western edge of runway 22. Our aircraft converged at less than a walking pace, each at the extreme edges of the runway. The pilots exchanged hand waves (and used all their fingers!) what 'triggered' this report is the previously no radio aircraft announced it was departure runway 22. A C310 announced it was still on the runway and would be clear momentarily. The remainder taxi to the turn off was less the 300 ft. The departure aircraft was never seen in the light drizzle. The line boy, when asked, told me the plane climbed out. About 200 -- 300 ft AGL. There was no other radio transmission by the departing aircraft on CTAF. Callback conversation with the reporter revealed the following information: this incident was not extreme in and of itself. The reporter sent in the report because the offending aircraft took off over the top before he exited the runway. It must have been and intersection takeoff to have been so soon after their passing. There is a problem at the airport with txwys which go from the ramp directly onto the runway with no taxiway in between. He stated the airport committee working toward changes to eliminate the areas of direct runway access and allow for taxi to the txwys. This will hopefully eliminate the back taxi problem which now occurs at times. The committee has put up signs to direct traffic, but it does not seem to work. There was no traffic moving when reporter overflew the airport prior to pattern entry.

Title: A C195 ON LNDG AT NON TWR ARPT HEARS UNICOM OPERATOR ADVISE BACK TAXIING ACFT THAT THERE IS A LNDG ACFT. EACH ACFT MOVES TO THE R AND THEY TAXI SLOWLY PAST EACH OTHER. SECOND ACFT TURNS AND MAKES A TKOF OVER THE TOP OF THE RPTR ACFT PRIOR TO HIS LEAVING THE RWY.
Narrative: RETURNING FROM THP, ON A VFR FLT PLAN, ANNOUNCED 10 MILES NW OF RAWLINS FOR TA AN WX ADVISORY. UNICOM REPLIED WITH WEATHER ADVISORY. I ANNOUNCED MID FIELD ENTRY FORECAST DOWNWIND FOR RWY 22. ASOS TEST ANNOUNCED 230 DEGREES -- 250 DEGREES AT 18G34. I ANNOUNCED LEFT DOWNWIND RWY 22 FULL STOP RAWLINS, ANNOUNCED LEFT BASE RWY 22 FULL STOP RAWLINS AT TOUCHDOWN UNICOM ANNOUNCED ACFT BACK TAXIING RWY 22 AIRCRAFT ON SHORT FINAL FOR LNDG. THAT WAS THE FIRST INDICATION I HAD OF ANOTHER ACFT MOVEMENT AT THE ARPT. THE ACFT STOPPED AT ABOUT 5000 FT FROM THE APCH END OF RWY 22. MY COMPLETED LNDG ROLL TO A STOP AT 3000 FT FROM THE APCH END OR RWY 22. HOWEVER, THIS PLACED MY ACFT BEYOND THE CROSSWIND RWY INTERSECTION. I CONTINUED TO TAXI TOWARDS THE NEXT TXWY TURN OUT ALONG THE EXTREME WESTERN EDGE OF RWY 22. OUR ACFT CONVERGED AT LESS THAN A WALKING PACE, EACH AT THE EXTREME EDGES OF THE RWY. THE PLTS EXCHANGED HAND WAVES (AND USED ALL THEIR FINGERS!) WHAT 'TRIGGERED' THIS RPT IS THE PREVIOUSLY NO RADIO ACFT ANNOUNCED IT WAS DEP RWY 22. A C310 ANNOUNCED IT WAS STILL ON THE RWY AND WOULD BE CLEAR MOMENTARILY. THE REMAINDER TAXI TO THE TURN OFF WAS LESS THE 300 FT. THE DEP ACFT WAS NEVER SEEN IN THE LIGHT DRIZZLE. THE LINE BOY, WHEN ASKED, TOLD ME THE PLANE CLIMBED OUT. ABOUT 200 -- 300 FT AGL. THERE WAS NO OTHER RADIO TRANSMISSION BY THE DEPARTING ACFT ON CTAF. CALLBACK CONVERSATION WITH THE RPTR REVEALED THE FOLLOWING INFO: THIS INCIDENT WAS NOT EXTREME IN AND OF ITSELF. THE RPTR SENT IN THE RPT BECAUSE THE OFFENDING ACFT TOOK OFF OVER THE TOP BEFORE HE EXITED THE RWY. IT MUST HAVE BEEN AND INTERSECTION TKOF TO HAVE BEEN SO SOON AFTER THEIR PASSING. THERE IS A PROB AT THE ARPT WITH TXWYS WHICH GO FROM THE RAMP DIRECTLY ONTO THE RWY WITH NO TXWY IN BETWEEN. HE STATED THE ARPT COMMITTEE WORKING TOWARD CHANGES TO ELIMINATE THE AREAS OF DIRECT RWY ACCESS AND ALLOW FOR TAXI TO THE TXWYS. THIS WILL HOPEFULLY ELIMINATE THE BACK TAXI PROB WHICH NOW OCCURS AT TIMES. THE COMMITTEE HAS PUT UP SIGNS TO DIRECT TFC, BUT IT DOES NOT SEEM TO WORK. THERE WAS NO TFC MOVING WHEN RPTR OVERFLEW THE ARPT PRIOR TO PATTERN ENTRY.
