I think there are too many questions about snow. There is very little  
snow where I live. So having snow hiking skills would really only  
indicate that I have a desire to travel to snowy places, places most  
people flee from to come to my neck of the woods. I'd much rather  
romp through wildflowers while the rest of the country is wondering  
when spring will ever get here.

And I'm sure that most of the people who hike the PCT can't tell the  
difference between desert and chaparral so they'll say they've hiked  
hundreds of miles in the desert when really it was only a few parts  
of a couple of days.

Not sure what the rafting stuff has to do with hiking, but I suppose  
if you live where rivers are more than 3 feet deep then maybe it  
means something.

Otherwise, it was a fun quiz. I can't see why anyone would make a  
fuss over it.
