I prefer to hike solo, but camp with company.

I have noticed that a lot of people with dogs hike much less miles than their dogs. It is possible to have the same arrangement with other hikers. <img src="/forums/images/graemlins/grin.gif" alt="" /> I hike with some young fast guys and they do all the side trips then meet me for camp.
