I hiked my first 14er today. We hiked to the summit of a 14,336 peak. Nothing like hiking with 20-something year olds to remind you are getting old. My body hurts right now.
I was slow, but still made it under the guide books duration of 10 hours (9 hours 33 minutes-round trip).
So what is your AW?
What differentiates an average host and a great host is anticipating unexpressed needs and wants of their guests. Just because the want/need is not expressed, doesn't mean it wouldn't be appreciated.
