It’s a pretty simple question, but have you ever stopped to really think about it?

What is it about hiking and backpacking that motivates you enough to go outside, give up the so called ‘comforts’ of home, and sleep outdoors?

Is it the sense of freedom? Sense of adventure? The peace and quite? Solitude? Time with friends? Testing abilities? Sharing your exploits on social media, or justifying your expensive gear habit?

Lately, I’ve been questioning the ‘why’ to a lot of things that take up my time. Partly as a time-management exercise, but also to help me better understand what’s important.

So, why do YOU hike?
