Got mail today. In the package was the pre-edition of Andrew Skurka’s soon-to-be-a-book about hiking and more specially hiking his way: fast and light. It’s pre-edition ’cause it’s more like a draft with all the spelling and punctuation mistakes, but the content is almost intact. This brochure should be a great addition to the two books by Chris Townsend – Backpacker’s Handbook and Advanced Backpacker – also more focused on lighter hiking.
But Andrew is probably the greatest at the moment. What he has achieved can be red here and in the March issue of National Geographic, which itself is quite remarkable.
