If You Don’t Post Your Hike On Social Media– Did You Even Go…?
Why am I suddenly talking about hiking?
It’s the season…! Also
I see loads of people
My age and younger
Dying in stupid as fuck ways–
Hiking seriously dangerous stretches
With advanced mountaineering skills
Alone, without much equipment.
People are like
“why are all these people out here in droves–
why does everest have a wait-list–
why is half dome being ruined–“
Because the fucking
Has become more important, more urgent
Than any reality could ever give anyone–
They’re all just competing
For who is the fittest–
Who is the fastest–
Who loves hiking THE MOST
Who runs trails THE MOST
Who is the most hardcore,
Who is the most outdoorsy of the outdoors–
Make sure you take a picture
And make a post–
If you don’t post about your hike
On social media–
Did you even go…?
