Two women discuss outdoor adventures. I like this part because I, too, would rather take the lighter load. That’s why, whenever I can. I travel with boys who are bigger than me.
“My group of guys knows that I can keep a quick pace so long as I’m not too bogged down with extra gear. It’s not that I can’t carry extra gear. It just means that, naturally, I won’t be as fast. So if my fastest pace is still slower than their average pace, then they may be waiting for me every once in awhile. They would usually rather carry the rope instead of having me take on the extra weight.”
