I am an Aspie hiker. I hiked the entire Appalachian Trail twice, the Pacific Crest Trail twice, and to and from the bottom of the Grand Canyon over 260 times. During one five-year period, I hiked over 14,000 trail miles.
What does hiking do for me? The life of a hiker offers a simple, regimented, regular routine that is the same day in and day out. Every hiker has a different routine, but the bottom line is that one walks. A lot. Close to every day. My hiking routine helps me stay focused and organized.
