    Hiking is Free
    Society seems obsessed with fitness. People spend thousands of dollars on exercise equipment that often just sits in a person's home collecting dust. A perfectly logical alternative is to go outside and walk. Anyone can do it, but few actually do. If you are lucky enough to live near a park or nature trail then get out and take advantage! A walk can be as easy as a stroll around the neighbor hood with the family dog or as strenuous as an all day hike/climb up a 14,000 foot peak. Comfortable shoes that are appropriate for the terrain on which you will be traveling is about the only equipment necessary. Carrying something to keep hydrated is a good idea. Camelbak makes some really nice backpacks with a hydration reservoir in them that make staying hydrated super easy. A small day pack can be nice for carrying extra layers which you will be glad you have when the weather changes.

    I'll see you out on the trail

    Amen, brother. As a programmer, thrombosis is always just another four-day coding binge away, but as a hiker my doctor tells me my heart is in great shape and I have more energy when I get back to the keyboard.

    Good thought about weather changes. It's always a good idea to carry some essentials for an unexpected delay.

    Good stuff, waiting for the snow to melt so I can start hiking here in Utah. If there are any affiliates or AM's who want to get together for a monthly hike I am all ears.
