Description

Planning a thru-hike can be a somewhat daunting and overwhelming task, especially for a beginning backpacker. While preparing for my journey on the Appalachian Trail (AT), I often felt lost in a sea of information, usually overturning more questions than answers. The purpose of this guide is to help cut through the confusion, condense the information and present it in a straightforward and simple way. I want to leave you feeling more confident about your upcoming escapade, rather than intimidated by the thought of planning it. My first overnight backpacking trip was thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail, so I hope my perspective can be appreciated by novice and seasoned hikers alike.

    What Great Book! I’m following Dixie on YouTube and Facebook while she is doing the PCT. I had so many questions on how she is doing it! What she used. Especially Shows? She answers every question! I live very Close to the PCT in Southern California. I just want to do parts of it. I`m 72 years old. But i’m going to use her great ideas so I can enjoy myself in comfort and go further. This book is for anyone anywhere who wants to go Back Packing and be Ready for the Adventure! Thanks Dixie!!
