I made a new friend, and reconnected with an old flame, and probably toasted a thousand calories on a 10 mile trek into the wilderness. School fucking sucks, but with hikes like these, I'm sure it'll all be worthwhile.

    U picked a degree that u aren't truly interested in and will be progressively miserbale. Living vicariously through ur future children is the best u can hope for.

    Thank God I graduated in EE, don't need breaks when u love ur job..

    I would've been out there today but I did something to my knee (I think it's my IT band) so I can't go hiking for a couple weeks.

    is there a website to find good trails?
    problem atm for me is that i live in a really flat area of the uk. would take an hours drive just to get anywhere worth walking that isn't a flat, boring field.

      I'd say something like alltrails but I've only used it in the states. My state has its own trail work/hike finding site which is great.

        It apparently has stuff for the UK. I think users can upload new trails.
