"Old Hikers Never Die....They Just Trail Away"
If there's an overnight involved, we tend to use the term "backpacking". Hiking, on the
other hand, is usually just one day. However, this can range from a short jaunt, possibly
with children or a dog involved, to a much more demanding, boulder-strewn, cat claw-
infested death march...or somewhere in between. It's a good idea to check with the
coordinator first, to find out which it's to be.
On that note, if Mark tells you something will be an easy hike - he's lying. Easy for him
is not easy for normal people.
