I plan to hike the Appalachian Trail after I retire from the military in a few years. "Postcard" tells a great tale of his hike, including a great discussion of a failed thru-hike in a prior year. Most helpful is the description of his gear and regimen to prevent blisters. Great read!
Kristen Iworsky
This was such a fun, inspiring, and great book. He draws fun pictures, and has a great sense of humor as he writes about his thru hike on the Appalachian Trail. Definitely a must read!
Jeff
Average writer with funny illustrations. One thing that sets this apart from other AT books is the appendix with suggestions for aspiring Thru-Hikers.
