Are gas prices slowing down your hiking plans?
How has current inflation changed your hiking plans?
My hiking partner and I have three peaks down so far in the NE challenge. All the ones we have done have been fairly local, but still costing close to $80 a trip just to get to the trail head. I didn’t mind those ones so much.
The last handful of peaks are all about 3 or so hours drive from us, but gas is over $5 a gallon now! 😭 🤢 with no end in sight..
We planned to do two or three peaks while up north to get to 6, but the cost of a hiking weekend to finish this challenge is looking insane $$$.
so…anyone else feeling the financial pinch for doing something we LOVE?! How has inflation changed your hiking plans?
