Excerpt from The Spinster's Guide to Dating
A Hike From Hell provides excellent opportunities for observing potential dates:
* There’s the dude, completely outfitted in khaki wicking material, who says a lot of these people have overestimated their abilities and shouldn’t be here in the first place. Of course, he keeps
looking at you...
*And then there’s the guy plodding behind. You talk about your social life and he responds, “This is a hiking club, not a dating club.” Wow...zero tolerance for dating...
*And of course, there’s that annoying group surrounding you and pointing, just because your backpack is a little heavy and you’re turtling...
*And finally there’s the one in front of you. He notices you are slipping on the rocks and offers a hand. By the end of the hike you’ve planned your wedding, the reception, but are still vacillating between strapless or spaghetti string...
Yes, a Hike From Hell is a great way to meet boys. And sometimes, both the frog and the prince are wearing hiking boots.
