I think 2012 was the last year before Instagram, Self Branding, and Guthooks App swept the thru-hiking world by storm, and now hikers don’t hang out in the tavern but sit in their hotel rooms self branding, asking you to turn off the tv so they can post uninterrupted. PUKE. At high spots you can hear You have service? And What does Guthooks say?
I’m not off the hook, I’ve done it too, especially when I was hiking with this one chick who needed to take ten selfies at the start of a hike because in the first NINE photos she didn’t like how she looked, because, it was going on Instagram.
