From gaiters to hypothermia
gaiters — protective gear designed to fit snugly over hiking boots meant to keep mud and debris from fouling socks, thereby keeping feet dry and comfortable.
GORP — “Good Old Raisins and Peanuts” snack food designed to boost stamina and maintain energy levels while hiking, composed of dried fruits and nuts.
holloway — a sunken path worn down due to foot traffic, rain and erosion that has fallen significantly below the vegetative banks on each side.
hump — to carry a heavy pack over a long distance.
hypothermia — a dangerous physical condition possibly leading to death, in which body temperature drops below 95 degrees Fahrenheit, impeding brain and body functions.
