    Don't Leave Home Without It

    This book was written by Rick Curtis, director of the Outdoor Action Program at Princeton University, one of the most succesful college outdoor programs around. It's not the kind of book you sit down and read, rather it's a good reference to keep handy when you have questions about things. Here's a bit of what it covers: <BR/><BR/>-backpacking equipment <BR/>-cooking and nutrition <BR/>-hygiene and water purification <BR/>-"leave-no-trace" hiking and camping <BR/>-weather <BR/>-safety and emergency procedures <BR/>-first aid <BR/>-trip planning <BR/><BR/>Every backpacker knows that space is limited and you can only carry the essentials- which definitely includes this book. In 10 chapters, a mid-size font, and 440 pages, it covers it all and will be the only backpacking guide you'll ever need. Hikers suffering with plantar fasciitis might also be interested in The 5-Minute Plantar Fasciitis Solution.

    If you are in backpacking, then you need a book on it.

    Just throwing your stuff in a backpack is not the right way to do it.
    This book is a good one to have to help you in knowing your backpack.
    Get read it then add it to your library so you can refer back to it.
    There may be something you need to go over after you have had time with your backpack or with your new backpack. The backpack you have now may not be your only one.
