Every year I create and lead an adventure on the North Shore based on the idea of the Hikers’ Dozen.
A dozen is twelve. A baker’s dozen is thirteen. And a hiker’s dozen is clearly eleven. Hikers tend to think they’ve gone farther and done more than they actually have, so eleven feels like the ideal number for them.
The Hikers’ Dozen Challenge began as a way to lump a bunch of smaller, interesting endeavors into a weekend-long adventure.
