If you are planning on (or just thinking about) hiking the Appalachian Trail, this book is for you. Planning an Appalachian Trail thru-hike is overwhelming. I know. I spent months researching every question I could think of before starting the six-month journey. Even after all of that research, there were countless mistakes I made. This book is everything I wish I would have known before starting. Inside is a step-by-step guide to efficiently plan for a successful thru-hike. Complete with personal tips and experiences.

Like anyone who is considering a thru hike, you listen to account after account of other people’s hikes hoping to gleam enough information to avoid all the rookie mistakes we hear about so often. Finally, this book gives you both an account of the thru hike with all the specifics you really want to know, especially about gear and what to pack. As a female, I can’t thank Chris enough for getting invaluable input from a pro on the facts of a female spending 6 months in the woods. Facts that no one really likes to talk about: periods, underwear, and grooming. I will listen to this book again and again as I get closer to my thru hike! This one book alone made me feel more prepared thank the other 3 I’ve listen to so far.
