    I've had to listen to music on a few occasions as I've passed, or been passed, by hikers with speakers attached to their packs. I guess they think everyone likes their music... Personally I never...

    I've always, and still, get a chuckle out of those that emphatically think their way is best.

    For off-season core work I used to simply do the hoola hoop 15 minutes a day. Works great. I have gotten away from it in recent years and instead just do planks. As an aging male, I have also...

    I've done a couple of nice hikes in Yellowstone. Fundamentally I just look at the Nat Geo maps and a guidebook and create my own trip. My last trip was a point to point starting at Yellowstone lake...
