Trekking, "n.: A wilderness excursion of 5-6 days or more where the foucu is on the journey rather than the destination. Trekking is an experience--and distinctly different than thru-hiking long (hundred-or thousand-mile) trails in the preparation, lifestyle, and time commitments involved. Buck Tilton takes you from planning the route (linking trails or finding loops) to tactical considerations (menus/ration planning, resupply, going lightweight) to making the most of your journey (life on the trail and the etiquette of section-hiking long trails).
Includes bibliographical references (p. 147-152) and index.
