Description
With thousands of all-weather miles to his credit, from North America to Europe to Asia, Chris Townsend is the ultimate guide for all backpackers. And he'll take you there. The Advanced Backpacker is an invaluable fusion of expert information and unlimited inspiration, featuring detailed discussions of everything from researching routes and choosing locations to planning, financing, equipping, and supplying oneself for the long haul.

Offering readers unprecedented insights into the extensive preparations -- both physical and mental -- required to develop the body and psyche of a long-distance hiker, Townsend also addresses the specifics of hiking in all climates, from deserts and mountains to the arctic tundra and the tropics. The Advanced Backpacker demonstrates top-level navigation techniques as well as specific safety and health precautions for extreme heat and cold.
