Did a 5 mile hike this weekend; 5 miles! OMG!!!

This was a favor to the wife, part of our leaving NH whirled tour of good-bys, hand wringing, and other necessary evils. A casual friend of ours got herself a new boy toy and wanted to show him off, problem was he wouldn't STFU the whole time; trying too hard to be liked. Arg.

I dragged everyone up a trail with several class 3 sections on exposed rock and while they all hugged the rock and sweated profusely I walked up the slabs back and forth offering moral support, beta, and helping hands (literally.) It takes a lot more effort to modify my pace and go slow than if I was just able to hike. It took the group 3X longer than it should have.

Boy toy kept spraying about how he loves cold water on the trail and he freezes his water bottles prior to the hike. "Oh, how clever. I just bring water and drink it no matter the temp," says I.

He kept stopping to suck out the meltwater from a 16 oz bottle the whole way, and by the end of the day it was still 70% frozen and he was parched, too proud to accept liquid from my Camelback. Whatevez.
