  3. Hahaha, number 8 is totally me! My obsession with socks started when I moved out to Denver and spent all my free time hiking. Gotta have good socks in the Rockies! :)

    #17. Definitely. My husband grew up in the Appalachians and even HE thinks I’m nuts for wanting to thru-hike the AT. He says he’ll do it with me one day, but I think I may end up soloing it. :)

  8. OMG – This is SO ME!!!!!!! That’s why I started my company Not a Clue Adventures!

  9. I actually took a Uhaul trailer tent camping once. And lately my wife is the one going on and on about the AT. I guess this is us.

    • That’s funny. I always THINK… we have so much stuff we could use a Uhaul. A couple months ago I saw one at tent campsite. I laughed & pointed it out to my husband, but immediately began thinking…hmmm…wonder how much one of those would cost? :)
