My posts in this thread are both. But mostly the latter. It will take me a few more years for the former to prevail. But I'm committed to that goal, so stay tuned.joebartels wrote:just realized the thread is cyclical not cynical
In my case, I just don't care enough to get an accurate AEG. I use the GAIA GPS app on my phone to track my hikes. I can do the same hike as a buddy who's wearing a Garmin watch and and somehow end up hiking 500' less AEG than him/her. FWIW, I'm at about 150k of vertical by my calculations (which aren't reflected on this site). Hats off to anyone above 300k. I guess I have too many other interests competing for my time that prevent me from logging that kind of vert!Jim_H wrote:Are people hiking as much but logging less? Are they hiking less, period? Are they still hiking the events, but trimming the trainers? These, I wonder. Is it more that the instagramification of out society is leading to more selfies on summits, and less written logs? Perhaps, we'll never know.
This Tucsonian spent his Summer in the Colorado mountains. There are plenty of opportunities to acquire AEG and mileage there. However, I was unable to do longer and more difficult hiking due to two things. My dog Joseph is 13 with a heart murmur, he decided after doing two 14er's he didn't want to do difficult hikes anymore at elevation.Jim_H wrote: a certain Tucsonian
