Awesome Primal Workout: Viking Trekking!

As I believe I mentioned previously, my friend the Viking Food Guy and I planned an epic "Viking Trek" for this weekend. You can read more about the details on my medieval blog.

It's of interest here because it occurred to me that the food I brought was all reasonably primal (home-made grass-fed beef jerky, grass-fed butter, dried fruits, hazelnuts, and dried vegetables), the shoes I wore were basically prehistoric barefoot shoes (a single layer of leather between you and the Earth and totally non-confining), and hiking with a load is a very "ancestral" workout!
