Strategically Wandering

The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) recommends “2 hours and 30 minutes of moderate-intensity aerobic activity every week and muscle-strengthening activities on 2 or more days a week that work all major muscle groups.” My co-worker and I hike briskly over rocky, uneven terrain for at least 6 hours per day while carrying our packs filled with food, water, and extra layers. We get about 10x the recommended amount of exercise each week to be “healthy.” It is pretty awesome getting paid to work out every day, and I definitely have no problem falling asleep every night. Plus I am going to have some gnarly calluses on my feet after all my blisters heal! We still haven’t found any weeds to map, but we do get to see a lot of scenery. And a LOT of sagebrush.
