    Go licking

    Hello,

    I have found the expression "go licking" in a text about activities that can be done during a summer holiday.

    Does this expression have any sense for you? I can't see the meaning of it, so I wonder if it may be simply a mistake.

    Thank you for you help.

    Re: Go licking

    Is there any more context than that?

    Re: Go licking

    It could be a typo for 'go hiking'.

    I am not a teacher.

    That seems likely. I was thinking "fishing". I smell OCR.

    Re: Go licking

    Or biking- I think you could be right. Perhaps it's a spellcheck correction where the writer didn't read the suggestions closely. I can't think what it means without changing the words.

    Yes, this is about a misspelling word, that is all.

    Thank you all for your effort
