canyonwren: (Leap)
I went to a social last night, meeting about eighteen people from a local hiking forum over pizza and beer. It was fun and my attention was drawn to a thread I hadn't read--hiking terminology. If you hit the trail, you need to know these terms! :D


Alti-tude: The grief a faster hiker/climber gives a slower hiker/climber for slowing down the progress of the group.

Aquatic Neurotic: A hiker who specializes in going to lakes.

Blueberry Bombs: The flatuance resulting from grazing on a large amount of berries along the trail.

Benchhiking: The act of reading trip reports and memorizing details while never actually going on the hike so when a question comes up, you can answer it with glaring precision like you've been there.

And the list goes on... )
