Hoisting a pack and heading out to the hills is both fulfilling and enriching. Relaxing, stressful, hard and fulfilling, if done right it is a way to find yourself in a much simpler world.
Being older can (sometimes) mean being smarter. Understanding your body, your gear and your goals make packing a much more enjoyable enterprise.
Whether you are hoisting a child, day hiking or getting out for a PCT through-hike, listen to your inner John Muir and get out!
