Great read! Flows nicely with great stories intermingled in the writing. I will definitely be checking back with this book to keep my pack light and get me closer to ultimate hiker status.
- Easy read
- Great information
I always thought I was a hiker at heart but this book changed my mind. With the amount of comfort items that I haul with me everywhere I would sit firmly in the camper realm.
With a desire to increase my distances while camping I have started using the tips in this book to lighten my load and make my adventures more efficient.
The book is a great read with stories and tips throughout that will help even the most experienced hiker. The author has a different skill set than most authors in that he has done the extreme when it comes to hiking and can attest to each of his tips through experience and failure.
Definitely recommended by me.
