A Comprehensive Guide to Plan and Prepare for a Successful Thru-Hike.
For me, preparing for a 6 month hike was overwhelming. Understanding the gear, logistics, budgeting, physical demands and countless other factors took months of research.
Looking back, there was A TON of stuff I missed...
stuff that could have saved me a lot time, money and stress.
The goal of this book is to make the preparation process as easy as possible and make the idea of a thru-hike much less intimidating.
