    Can't Hike Quite So Far Any More

    But yes, I do like to hike.  (Way more than swim). I really like hiking a nice trail through the woods.I don't think I could do my 100 mile hike anymore, even with way more time, but I still like to be out alone in the woods.

    I love hiking through hills

    and valleys, around beautiful lakes and through woods and forests, just to hear the birds and to watch the animals. I can leave all problems behind me. The nature donĀ“t judge me.

    I've been considering doing a solo hike this

    summer on the Appalachian trail. My idea is to go for 10 days, and do about 200 miles. Thoughts?

    My parents were always very outdoorsy.

    They would take me on hiking and horseback riding trips since before I can remember. Before I could even walk, they would take me on hiking trips strapped into one of those baby-backpack things. Now I'm 18, and I'm beginning to out pace my parents in both ambition and ability...
