Trekking, n.: A wilderness excursion of 5-6 days or more where the focus is on the journey rather than the destination.

Trekking is an experience-and distinctly different than thru-hiking long (hundred- or thousand-mile) trails in the preparation, lifestyle, and time commitments involved. Buck Tilton takes you from planning the route (linking trails or finding loops) to tactical considerations (menus/ration planning, resupply, going lightweight) to making the most of your journey (life on the trail and the etiquette of section-hiking long trails).

Buck Tilton, M.S., is the award-winning author of more than fifteen books, including Don't Get Sick (with Rick Bennett, Ph.D.) and Don't Get Bitten. He is a co-founder of the Wilderness Medicine Institute of the National Outdoor Leadership School (NOLS).
