Ahhh... then it must be a percentage. It seems to be a broad measurement of a few things...

I love walking. I also live on the campus of the largest university in the state of Maryland, so this is a good thing.
A week or so ago, I went on a hike with my friend in the woods. I was not aware, however, that she was the type to find following established trails "too restrictive", so we went bushwhacking against my better judgement and got completely lost. By the time we found the trail and wandered along until we came across a signpost with a map, it was a good three hours after we started! We had only planned to do a short recreational hike, but after a few other mishaps it turned out to be well over ten miles long. All in all, a great day, but one I'd rather not go through again. I'm planning the next hike.
