Prepare for your next backcountry adventure with Katie "Salty" Gerber and Heather "Anish" Anderson in this virtual discussion moderated by fellow long-distance hiker Liz "Snorkel" Thomas. 

In Adventure Ready, Katie and Heather take what they’ve learned on the trail 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.
