    In my experience, it's when my gf gets p.o'd at me and hikes off faster than I can keep up with her.

    Freeblazing -- hiking wherever, whenever I want to, with no particular plan. Courtesy a log entry at the Ed Garvey shelter by Flower Child.

    That is the beginning of the recipe for Fromunda Cheese.

    Zero Day - change the implication of what it means by changing the definition to a more empowering one

    New Zero Day - a day of compromise where one makes themselves vulnerable to potentially a wider range of life experiences during a journey

    The current definition suggests a Zero Day is to hike zero miles or is a day of rest in town or resupply when a Zero Day certainly does not have to be approached in such fashion. Zero Days can certainly include hiking that involves added hiking away from the AT or hiking through a city having worthy life experiences. To suggest my Zero Days going into Washington DC from Harpers Ferry on an AT thru-hike involved no hiking miles as I hiked around the city for 20+ miles each day is misleading and incorrect. I could give many examples of such Zero Days as they were experienced hiking possibly more miles than hiking the primary trail.

    I know I'm a geezer (my thru-hike was 39 years ago), but I was surprised not to see roadwalk and Maine Disease in here. Roadwalk is very self-explanatory, but it is a word we thru-hikers coined. Try running it through a spellchecker. Maybe it's seared into my mind because I did the 18-mile Cumberland Valley roadwalk on a 100+ degree day, and they've done a terrific job getting rid of those longer roadwalks since my day.

    Maine Disease is what northbound thru-hikers called the condition which afflicts us in that state with a reluctance to speed the end which is now so near. We slow down to savor all of the sights, stop for the night early, and our daily mileage drops. Do they still use that one?
