I was paid what I consider a compliment by a co-worker of mine. On a daily basis I carry a day pack and walk from the front gate to my shop.
As I was walking in to work recently a co-worker asked me if I "walked on trails".
I responded, "Yes I do"!
His response was, "It shows, you've got that kind of a walk".
Until that point in time I didn't really know that I walked like a hiker. :-)
Does your hiking show? Can other hikers pick you out of a crowd? Would a non-hiker see something about you that would clue them in to your being a hiker?
If so, please tell us about it.
