An acronym for Put Your Car At The End, an action which is extremely useful when transportation will be required after an activity is completed some many miles from where it started. Pycating must involve 2 vehicles (one to leave at the endpoint and then a second to drive to the starting point) and requires a small amount of prior planning on the part of the pycators. Examples almost certainly involving pycation include canoeing, hiking, water rafting, backpacking, kayaking, etc.
In order to facilitate getting home after the day-long canoe trip, it is necessary to pycate before we begin.
