The Average Hiker's Above-Average Guide to Backpacking

381 printed pages
A guide for the average person interested in backpacking. This book helps the backpacker identify their needs, construct a pack list, and acquire their equipment in an efficient, cost-effective manner. It provides an up-to-date review of materials, clothing, shelters, food, sleeping equipment, first aid, and much more. For the budget-conscious to the high-end consumer, this book will remove barriers and get you out on the trail.

At the end of each section, a questionnaire is presented to prompt the reader to enter their preferences for types of gear. After responding to the various chapters and prompts, the reader can build a packing list within a budget and size/weight constraints.

With this book, you should be accomplishing more than selecting the proper equipment. You will be making a choice about being happier. The equipment you choose will be your partner through many years of enriching and formative experiences. And those experiences will contribute significantly to your personal happiness.
