Summary

This is not a memoir.  This is a practical how-to guide on thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail.  I set out to write a guide that I wish my pre-thru-hiking self had.   
The purpose of this book is to give you a realistic vision, help you prepare, and give you the extra motivation to plan and complete a successful thru-hike. 
Although this book was written with SOBOS in mind it doesn't mean it's not relevant to other thru-hikers.  NOBOS, flip-floppers, and even section hikers can benefit from this book as well.   
  
What will this book teach you? 
  
- Why you should go Southbound, and why you shouldn't. 
- How to budget for a thru-hike and save money on the trail. 
- The "true" essentials, and what can be left at home. 
- How to get to Katahdin and prepare for the 100 Miles of Wilderness. 
- What it's like adapting to trail life. 
- What to expect when passing through all 14 States. 
- How many calories you will need a day and what to food to pack. 
- What the real dangers on the trail are, how to deal with them, and what dangers are overblown. 
- How to deal with the mental & physical game.   
and much more…
