10 Hiking-dudes single girls are sick and tired of on the trail!

By Love Hiking 2015.04.24 in Hiking

Looking for the adventure of a lifetime by combing hiking and dating?

Think twice – your appearence might be chick-deterrent on the trail! Read these awfully unattractive but yet really common mistakes made by dudes wanting to impress female hikers. Consider this your ten comands of how not to behave.
Hiking guy

Please note that the guy in the picture has nothing to do with the blogpost. (Source)

1. He who smells 

You’d rather sleep under the stars than share tent with him. There a rainbow of body odour that you wish you never had to know a human could produce.

2. He who talks to much

Not only does he scare away any wildlife there might be in the surroundings. He also makes you wanna hit him in the face. Hard.

You don’t want to hear someone complaing of his job situation, and over-repetedly analyzing the wonderful surroundings comenting on every hilltop and chatting on about everything and nothing.

3. He who pees in front of you  

Please guys just take a few more steps away from the trail and find a private spot. All things are not better natural. I preffer not to see it and not to hear the sound of you natural business. And please wash your hands afterwards.

4. He who brags to much

You know that guy who has loads of self centered stories of himself hiking 40 kilometers a day, gaining no sleep, not stopping for lunch break and who run a marathon before breakfast.

I’m just not into that! Give me a break and let’s make out in the sunset falling on the hillside.

5. He who is obsessively tech-savvy

That guy who has the latest gear of everything. For example a t-shirt wit an integrated heart rate monitor, a watch with GPS and weather forecast and a solar charger attatched to the backpack.

Well let’s just sum this guy up with – There will be more time spent securing tomorrows recharged batteries than there will be time to loose yourself in eatch others arms.

6. He who always gives you advice – Advice you don’t need

Just because I am a woman that does not equal that I do not know how to take care of myself, select hiking gear, take care of my blisters, use the camping stove or put up my tent. Do not make the mistake du underestimate your female comrade.

7. He who stares at you uncomfortable

You know that obsessed stare from someone who do not know that you know that he stares at you. And even worse – he who won´t look away when you confront him with staring back.

Jut give me some space please. Creepy guys are creepy in any urban environment – but outdoors that kind of behaviour is even creepier. I can promise you that this move will makes any female stay far, far away.

8. He who just can´t stop hitting on you

Smooth talk can be nice. But you do not want to be TO clear. And a woman definetely don’t want to repetedly be forced to turn you down. He who waits…

9. He who walks to fast

This is just the rudest thing anyone can do on the trail. If you go hiking together there is a silent understanding that you are completing the trail together, sharing ups and downs, encouraging eachother to make it.

But there is NOT a question of pushing the partner to the extent that it results in that one partner has to run to keep up – risking exautsion, stressing the joints and feeling overwhelmed of not being enough.

10. He who has no surprises

Let me just put it this way; At least bring some extra chocolate and a bottle of wine in your backpack.

3 movies NOT to see before staying in the woods

By Love Hiking 2015.04.17 in Camping

A Perfect Getaway

A thriller movie that involves three couples hiking through a remote part of Hawaii. Of course, it turns out that one of these couples has murderous intentions.

The Hike

This film is about a group of women who go on a camping trip in British countryside. But it all goes from having a good time and enjoying themselves to a fight for their lives as they are soon being hunted by someone in the forest.

Cabin Fever

Here’s another camping movie. This one feature a bunch of dumb, overly-sexed college kids who get infected with a strange disease…it’s definitely not for those with weak stomachs.

 

 

“If traveling was free you’d never see me again”

True that!  Do you agree?

Love Hiking

This is a blog for you who love hiking!

The intentions of this blog, and my relationship to nature and hiking, is best described by the words of Jay Salter:

“What it is...is a place where I can return to myself. It's enough of a scramble to get to...that the energy expended is significant, and it translates into a change in my body chemistry and my psychological chemistry and my heart chemistry...”

I want to share all of this LOVE with you!
