We are going over various types of hikers that we meet along the trail when out enjoying nature and today we are featuring the City Hiker.
A lot of times you can smell the City Hiker before you see them. This may not be their fault as they have most likely been in an office, coffee shop, or just in traffic. An enthusiast of nature who still enjoys the night life in town, most City Hikers can be spotted on the trail around noon or just after 5 depending on work schedules or of course anytime on weekends. The City hiker may carry a variety of Tarpestrys around in their car so that they can use the best Tarpestry that matched the hike. For instance, a full size Tarpestry would work well on the short hike for a nice lunch break picnic but a mini Tarpestry could be better for a “workout” hike after work for that moment of reflection at the peak.
Be kind to these hikers as you pass them by as they can often be worn thin by the city bustle and need that restorative fresh air of nature. They probably aren’t going to be to parched (they’ll have on a water pack) or hungry (they’re prepared or already ate) and they may just need a nice smile or “hello” upon passing. Remember this is a nature break from the city not just a passive hike around.
