Ever dream of the summer when you can hike the Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, or John Muir Trail? Aren’t sure how to go from dream to reality?
In this approachable take on distance hiking, celebrated thru-hiker Liz Thomas will share stories from her new book, the National Outdoor Book Award winning Long Trails: Mastering the Art of the Thru-hike. With real-life stories from dozens of trails including the Appalachian, Pacific Crest, and Continental Divide Trails, Liz showcases expert tips by experienced hikers from all backgrounds.
Part-story-telling, part how-to, this talk includes topics such as: safety, hygiene, gear, nutrition, staying in good graces with family and friends on-and-off trail, and finding the time and money to hike for weeks or months. Attendees are invited for a Q&A afterward as well as a book signing with the author.
