  • Tips based on the authors' extensive on-the-ground experiences
  • Interest in hiking and long-distance trails continues to boom
In Adventure Ready, renowned hikers Katie "Salty" Gerber and Heather "Anish" Anderson take what they've learned both on the trail and through teaching their online classes to a new level: preparing long-distance hikers for all the challenges--physical, emotional, and mental--they may encounter while on the trail for weeks or months. This clear and comprehensive guide sets backpackers up for success with detailed information about everything from the basics of gear selection, navigation, safety, and trip planning to nutritional and physical preparation and body resiliency to how to readjust after returning home. Worksheets and checklists make it easy to stay on top of all the planning a long-distance hike requires, while thoughtful prompts to address the "Why" of your adventure help to keep you motivated.

Adventure Ready empowers both men and women to create goals, face challenges, and be stronger and smarter on the trail.
