Why do you hike?
Hiking means many different things to many other people. You might hike for a specific goal. It might be for fitness reasons. Maybe it’s for your mental health. What is the reason that you have chosen to hike for?
I hike for a few different reasons.
I hike because it’s healthy and keeps me exercising and moving.
I hike because I get to spend time outdoors with Michelle. We both love hiking. It’s something we both love to do together.
I hike because before I hiked and biked, I didn’t do anything but make bad health and life decisions.
I hike because it connects me with nature and shows me the bigger picture of life.
Why do you hike?
I’d love to know what makes you and everyone else want to hike. What is your calling? What makes you urge to get out there on the trail? When did you start hiking?

Please Support Hiking with Shawn
Alrighty folks, I hope you have enjoyed this content. I provide it for free and it takes a while to create. If you would be so kind enough to support my efforts, you can do so by sharing this post with others, especially on social media. Be sure to subscribe to my YouTube Channel to see my latest videos, shorts and live streams. Follow me on Facebook, Instagram, Twitter and TikTok for unique content that you will only find on those pages.

You can also support me by becoming a Patreon Supporter for as little as $3/month and you can cancel anytime (no contracts or catches). Patreons get access to extra features, exclusive articles, sticker packs, gifts and more. Consider buying official Hiking with Shawn Merchandise as another way to support me. I spend a lot of money on Hiking with Shawn and because of extremely high public land permit fees, I make very little money in return so everything helps.
Thanks again for checking out another one of my articles and until next time, I’ll see you on the trail!
