Why do you enjoy spending time out in nature?

My work frequently involves alot of particulates, solvents and noise, so in addition to the scenery and comraderie of hiking I like the novelty of breathing clean air in a quiet environment.

Do you have rain gear and appropriate non-cotton hiking clothing?

I have a bright yellow vinyl rain coat and matching pants in my car emergency kit, and a "Weatherproof" jacket with a warning label that says weatherproof is just a brand name. I would welcome some advice on the best places to find gear and what kind to buy.


I relocated to Hillsboro from Hollywood last year and like the idea of contemplative hiking before I attempt the more challenging stuff. I also enjoy bicycling on flat surfaces, camping near my car, and playing scrabble without the dictionary.
