I tried this earlier today but the message got bounced. My apologizes if
it comes through twice.
I'm coming out of the closet to add a couple more to the list....
While on non-hiking trips, the first thing you do after checking into a
hotel / motel is check the yellow pages for outfitters.
You have to explain to your traveling partner why all of the shortcuts and
scenic routes you take always go past at least one outfitter.
You sit down to plan the family vacation and your wife says with full
support of the rest of the family, "The vacation this year will NOT include
backpacking, hiking, leisurely walks in the woods, lunch by a secluded
waterfall, or watching the sunset from the best viewpoint in the mountains.
In fact, if we even suspect that you are going to try to trick us again,
the only mountain you're going to see is Space Mountain!" With the threat
of Disney hanging over your head you are a beat person and give in to
anything they want.
