So I really like hiking. Drive to northern New England once a week to hike something. Often bust my cot out in the visitor center at Mt Washington so I can be on the trail before 5am and hike it twice in one day. Sure its not skiing but its physical activity I enjoy 'almost' as much in the mountains etc etc.
In the winter when I'm staying in Stowe or skiing Wildcat and staying in North Conway I like getting a hotel room and always wish I could stay another night.
In the summer I drive up there to hike and am happy to GTFO and drive another 3 hours home and spend 6-8 hrs in the car in a day before and after the hike cause I just don't feel like hanging. Its all green and shitty and theres mad fucking weeds and shit everywhere you look when your driving around and I enjoy being on the mountain itself but I don't really want to kick it and hang up there. I like Western mountains in the summer but those are pretty landlocked.
Anyone feel me?
