    Is there some sort of competition or skill involved in hiking?

    Just because one doesn't necessarily like something, doesn't dismiss it as a sport. I can't stand NASCAR or pro bowling. They're still sports. I'm not partial to the NBA either - nobody will deny (with a straight face) that it's a sport.

    Gotta love summer on CF when people start threads to try and start crap.


    I don't know the key to success, but the key to failure is trying to please everyone.

    No.

    Physical skill + competition. Last I checked there aren't any hiking competitions.

    I believe they're called cross country but I could be wrong.
