I have a confession. When I started my hiking journey at the start of the coronavirus pandemic, I was that person who cranked up my music as I walked along the trails. Sometimes I even sang loudly. Yes, I’m a little embarrassed.
Unaware of how annoying this can be to others, my volume was cranked up on my speaker playing Dua Lipa and Lady Gaga (I’m a pop diva). The bad habit happened about five times before I started noticing the disapproving faces and ugly looks.
