How to Fail on Your First Hike
In Alberta there are said to be numerous cults: the people who never left their hometown, the horse-girls, ravers, pyramid schemers, and hikers. I constantly drowned in a sense of not belonging, constantly feeling like an outsider no matter what environment I was in. Logically, I decided the best way to find my place in the world would be to join one of these ‘cults’. I couldn't find enough interest in drugs or beads to be a raver. And I couldn’t afford horses. And even though I had the muffin top of a new mother, I didn’t have the persistence to be a pyramid schemer. To me, it became an obvious choice, join the hiking cult! Within a couple of days I called my friend, and we were on a journey of epic fails and public embarrassment!
