comment How to retrieve a bear bag when hung with Pacific Crest Trail (PCT) method
I guess I'm missing something. Anything out of a bears reach would be out of my reach, so how do I pull it back up?

comment Why is it tiring to “keep down” with a slower person on a walk or hike?
@JamesJenkins -- We also hike with groups. The pace can vary per hike. The only thing that I've found makes me more tired is covering more distance in less time. I don't think your statement about "two muscle sets" is accurate. The legs have a finite set of muscles so clearly I can't be using a different set of muscles of every possible pace.

"But walking at a slower pace than is natural is also tiring" -- I don't think this is a universal thing. My wife is slower than me and I've never gotten more tired by hiking her pace.
