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.

The Advanced Backpacker demonstrates top-level navigation techniques as well as specific safety and health precautions for extreme heat and cold.
