there is a revolution happening
Lightweight and Ultralight backpacking are real, and it can change the way you appreciate the Wilderness.
Just get it. Worth every penny.
I wanted to get back into backpacking again but a low back problem was keeping from carrying the weight of my old gear. The information in this book (and Ladigan's book "Lighten Up!") changed my mindset about gear and pack weight entirely.
My friend still carries about 45 lbs of gear for our weekend trips. When he lifted my pack during our last trip he said, "You've gotta be kiddin me!" I just smiled and told him to get the books.
Right on for you! You're reflecting back to me EXACTLY my goal when I wrote this little book. Huge thanks!
I went into the project thinking it was going to be a technical instructional on how to make your own gear, and modify existing gear (all that's in there). But, there really isn't that much gear to play with once you get right down to it. As I immersed myself in the writing process, the book morphed into something a lot more spiritual. Modifying the gear is easy, modifying the MIND-SET is challenging!
PLEASE - send me a few pictures - I wanna add this wonderful email to my blog!
