The lure of hiking Big Years

Does this person show happiness? I think so.

Hiking in Wales with good friends, each day I sank further and further into the sheer pleasure of extended walking, sometimes close to civilisation, sometimes quite remote. The Jogging Big Year and Writing Big Year have curtailed our walking somewhat and the thought occurred to me: shouldn’t I do a Hiking Big Year? Max out on something clearly challenging, beneficial and enjoyable?

But when? 2017 certainly isn’t a Hiking Big Year and 2018 seems so far away!
