Q: Phil, do you listen to any music or read any books? Was curious whether music enhances or detracts from such a venture and was wondering if you are too tired to read...

A: I listen to music about 20% of the time while hiking. Praise music to lift my spirit mostly. Rock n roll to get up the big climbs. Have read 2 books on kindle so far, Boys in the Boat and Unbroken. Usually too tired to read.
