Skurka Talks Outdoor Essentials and Guided Hiking
I was pleased to see a brief profile of long-distance hiker Andrew Skurka by Chelsea Hohn over at ActionHub.

Skurka’s excellent book, The Ultimate Hikers Gear Guide, was the inspiration for the gear choices that kept my pack weight at (or under) 30 pounds during my thru-hike of the John Muir Trail.
The book was also indispensable in helping me dial in what to eat for two weeks on the trail and how much food I needed to carry, which is the hardest part of the whole long-distance hiking equation.
Check out Skuka’s book, and many other adventure titles, on the Fordsbasement Adventure Library.
