I would compare my relationship with hiking to that which one might have with their best friend from childhood that they still meet up with for coffee once a week. There’s no judgement if we miss a week, or if I talk only about myself while we hang out. Hiking doesn’t notice if I’ve put on weight or forgotten to… Read more »

Those daydreams you’ve been having of future hiking and camping trips are becoming more and more real.

Are you a procrastinator? Do you constantly delegate things to your future self? Does one of those things happen to be hiking? I know that I sometimes catch myself thinking that I don’t have time today, or tomorrow, or this week, to go for a hike. Actually, I find myself doing that with most forms of exercise.
