Translation:I will be thirsty after the long walk.
October 15, 2015
I don't think so. To me, the primary meaning of "hike" is "to walk in the woods." There is a secondary, almost slang meaning of "to go a long way."
- I drove in from Petroville. What a hike!
To call a long walk "a hike" is to break the metaphor in the secondary, slang meaning.
