Have you heard the news?!? There's a new book coming out, currently scheduled for the end of October, 2017, named How to Hike and NOT Die - Fundamentals for the Novice Hiker. The book provides all the basic information everyone new to the outdoors needs to know before they go. It includes the basic steps to follow when deciding where to hike, provides fundamental information on hiking terms and plenty of resources for you to gain knowledge and find what you need for your next outing. There are also plenty of stories about times that things went right - and when they didn't - and how to avoid the "didn'ts!" No more wondering if you are ready - remove the indecision that holds you back, and get out there!
I'm proud to be bringing this much needed information to the public. Too often, people get themselves into trouble on the trail because they are unprepared. You don't have to be one of them! There is so much information available today, and I've scrubbed it for you, putting together what you NEED to know so you can have an enjoyable, and safe, time on the trail. The focus of this project is to make sure that you know what you need to do before you head out, so we can all avoid calling the search & rescue teams!
If you just can't wait for the book to come out, or you want to start brushing up on your outdoor skills now that autumn is upon us, you can start your journey by checking out our Facebook page (@HikeWithoutDying), or follow us on Twitter (@HikeWithoutDyin) or on Instagram (@HikeWithoutDying). We'd love to hear from you!
