    I personally think hiking is among the most boring wastes of time I can imagine. I’m always really turned off when people suggest doing so, but I often end up going, anyway. Wow, I’m walking… but in a new setting… so fulfilling? Watching television is more productive, educational and entertaining, just less physical (add a treadmill, and that changes).
