Re: So you think you want to thru-hike- Part 2


Great post, "Uncle Wolf"!

While we're on this subject, I found the guide books to be indispensable
for exactly the reasons you mention: it's much easier to actually _find_
shelters and springs with them than with the data book (I never would've
found the Sarver cabin without them...)

Also, all of the "getting psyched" books and videos are great before you
hike, and give you a little bit of an idea of what to expect, but do
yourself a favor and re-read them (or rewatch them) _after_ your thru-hike.
Everything makes a lot more sense that way. Lagunatic's videos are
especially good for after-trail viewing!
