Adventure Ready: A Hiker’s Guide to Planning, Training, and Resiliency

We rated this book:


The outdoors isn’t for everyone, but when someone is prepared, their chance of success increases dramatically. Katie Gerber and Heather Anderson want to make us Adventure Ready by providing their readers with A Hiker’s Guide to Planning, Training, and Resiliency while out in the wild solo or with a group. The authors have the credentials to back up the advice they share, and they wish for new adventurers to save time, money, and mistakes as well as begin their journey with information pertaining to nutrition and personal training.

Within the pages lie charts, pictures, and an organized format to ensure success with understanding the material presented and applying it in the wild. The chapters cover topics such as planning your backpacking trip, selecting your gear, being aware of safety in the wild, navigation and route preparedness, getting in shape physically and mentally, nutrition and meal planning, along with reintegration.

If someone were to think about camping, they might not think much of it besides needing a tent and a sleeping bag, but Gerber and Anderson show us that there is quite a bit more to this adventure than meets the eye and you’ll be more than prepared after reading Adventure Ready!
