I take my time and look around. That is the part I enjoy. Covering 10-15 miles of trail without getting to enjoy what is around me is not very fun (for me anyway). I think it would be fun.
I'm not very conditioned right now. I just noticed that subject. I'm trying to get that way by going to a local spot that I hunt. To be honest its up and down for almost a 1/2 mile constantly, then it only get worse from there. You have to bushwack most of it if you want to avoid the horseback riders (which I do). I usually end up finding a nice spot near the lake somewhere and I used to put the tent up. Now I use my tent to simulate my food weight and my .45 simulates the weight of my clothes. What? You think I'm going into a hunting area without a gun.. your nuts.
