Justin Lichter, aka Trauma, is an ultrahiker which means he hikes thousands of miles every year putting himself and his gear to the test every time. Justin has taken some time out recently to work on sharing some his knowledge, tips and advice in a new book. He updated us recently on how it’s been going…
It has been a long road and a lot of work, almost harder than any long distance adventure that I have ever undertaken. I am pleased to announce that my book has finally been passed off to the printer. It will be hot off the press and ready in about 2 weeks.
Trail Tested: A Thru-hiker’s Insights Into Hiking and Backpacking will be ready and on the shelves by the beginning of May. I look forward to giving back and making it easier and more enjoyable for people to get outdoors and go backpacking. I have hiked over 35,000 miles in the past 10 years and have learned countless lessons along the way. I share all of the knowledge, tips, advice, and thoughts that I have picked up, one example (not to shamelessly plug Icebreaker!) being why merino wool performs so well and is the best for any outdoor activity. I have included a sneak peak of one of the pages on hiking clothes for you to see.
I hope you are all as excited about the book as I am. I can’t wait to hold the printed copy in my arms and flip through it, partly because it feels like the culmination of a big project, but mostly because I look forward to helping people – and most of all so I can finally shut off my computer and go hiking again!
