I have hiked, and backpacked but never done anything or an extended period of time or many miles. In am thinking about doing a solo on a local 100 mile thru and wondering what most of you do for muscle soreness. When I go hiking and come home at nite I have a roller I lay on the floor and roll back and forth. When I backpack I am usually with a group and we move slow so it seems my body doesn't really get abused. I saw a stick travel roller on rei. Would make link if I was smart enough. Wondering about this. I know it will only be 4 to 5 day trip but what can I say I am kind of a wuss.
