    Take a Hike

    Have you ever heard the saying "Walk it out"? It really works. If you or someone else has a crank going, a little exercise, beautiful scenery, and a chance to work the stale air out of your lungs hits the spot every time.

    Tell that grouch to "take a hike", literally. Where do you recommend they go? Be nice, now.
