I’m thinking most of the remainder of my entries are going to be on hikes I haven’t hiked, but they are hikes I intend to do, of course, IN MY SPARE TIME.  Do I even need to elaborate on the “spare time” bit…I’m sure we all know by now that “spare time” means not even if Hell freezes over, but nevertheless, it’s nice to keep those “spare time” things in mind, if not to do, then as a reminder of the fact that we once had lives outside of school.  Oh, memories, sweet memories.
