HYOH (Hike Your Own Hike)

One of the AT’s most common phrases, which means anything from “to each his/her own” to “stay out of my business.”  At heart, don’t allow others prevent you from experiencing and enjoying your own unique journey.

Hiking my own hike by toting a six pack up the Presidential Peaks, despite warnings that it would be too heavy. #Murrica

Example: ‘Some jerk told me I didn’t need a pocket-knife with 31 functions and I said, “Hike Your Own Hike.”’
