Overview

The Dave Barry of the hiking scene, Ron C. Judd gleefully punctures the rainfly and raises blisters as he lays down the rules of engagement in God's Country. A punchy collection of lists, true stories, jokes, and actual useful information, this witty, wide-ranging guide covers necessary and not-so-necessary topics, including tips on surviving woodsy nightmares like poison oak, park rangers, and the dreaded Family Camping Trip; a field trip to REI's flagship store, the mother ship of camping gear; the oxymoron of RV camping; outdoor hygiene basics— dig it in or pack it out?—and getting oriented by means of a map, compass, GPS, and the campground satellite dish. The book also provides a rundown on equipment, from choosing footwear and backpacks to weighing the merits of the Therm-A-Rest Deluxe.
