    My husband is somewhat duck-footed. We successfully completed the trail over a ten year period. This is not a topic he and I have ever discussed, and I don't know if any of his aches and pains are...

    A factor not mentioned much so far (except by TNhiker) is that some riders are mere tourists, not experienced equestrians. They may have zero idea of how to control a horse and zero idea of how a...

    Andre the Giant??? LOL

    If I'm walking off-trail to use the bathroom, I guess I'd better be paying attention!

    Not every hiker is as ambitious as Gambit! Yes, sometimes we've had to cut a hike short, but it's been rare. I remember once being out in a January all-day rain, and it was kinda miserable, so we...

    I'll have to look that up. I read Call of the Wild and White Fang at least twice as a youth. Never ran across A Piece of Steak.

    My husband hates to read also - unless it's a technical manual for automotive work. He says the only book he's ever read is Jack London's To Built a Fire. Is that even a book? I thought it was a...
