Andrew Skurka update

Professional hiker and author

Andrew Skurka is now blogging. He is sharing his very detailed insights into trip planning and trail techniques. Of special interest to me was his food planning and how to print topo maps for a long hike.

His book is due out any day now. It's published by NATIONAL GEOGRAPHIC and it's loaded with color photographs. It's titled: The Ultimate Hiker’s Gear Guide: Tools & Techniques to Hit the Trail (linked to his site).

Here's a super nice review of the book on an awesome site called HIKING IN FINLAND. I felt really honored to see this photo featured there.

igloos are easy!

The tent weight logs in at ZERO!

A nice instructional article on IGLOO CONSTRUCTION with a shout out to one of my other books. Sam and I have worked together and hiked together in the big mountains of the Northern Rockies. He is a seasoned ultra-light camper, and his blog is a must read.
