Who's Your Dream Hiking Partner?

From John Muir to Jimmy Buffett to Samwise, our editors picked their ideal companions (living, dead, and fictional) for a trek. Text by Shey Kiester.

Jimmy Buffet
"I'd take him on one of my favorite hikes, to the top of Blue Mountain in Jamaica," says one editor.  "We'd hike, tell stories (he'd tell, I'd listen). He would sing me to sleep at our campsite at the summit, and we would finish the trip at Margaritaville in Negril, where he would perform an impromptu concert and invite me up on stage to sing (ok, lip synch) backup for him.”  Now THAT's a trip.
