I'm pretty excited about this giveaway! And it comes at the perfect time for those planning a 2013 AT hike. By now everyone is reviewing their gear list and waiting (not so) patiently for their AT Guide to be shipped. It can feel all-consuming, in a good way.
So while you're scouring message boards and driving all of your friends crazy with constant talk of the AT, I'd like to suggest a book to feed your eager minds - Appalachian Trials, by Zach Davis. It focuses on the mental preparation needed for a thru-hike and how you can increase your chances of finishing all 2000+ miles.
An extra bonus - Zach has been kind enough to sign a copy for us to giveaway. There are a couple of different ways you can earn entries into the contest so just follow the instructions below in the rafflecopter widget and you'll be one step closer to owning this bright yellow gem of a book.
And if you don't win, you can always grab a copy on amazon (print or kindle). It makes a great gift for any hiker and if nothing else, it will look cool on your bookshelf ;-)
Please know that it's not because we are greedy for followers, we just want to be fair to those who followed the rules and took the time to visit our pages on other sites. Good luck to everyone - we can't wait to draw the winner and announce on Friday!!
