2016 PCT Thru-Hikers: Score a Free Copy of Pacific Crest Trials
This one is simple. If you thru-hiked the PCT this year (2016), we want to make a trade with you.
You receive: a free print copy of Pacific Crest Trials (limited supplies. We will send ebooks once our print book inventory is depleted.). (UPDATE: We have exhausted our supply of print books, but still have plenty of the electronic copies 😉 )
We receive: Your summit photo and permission to share it on AppalachianTrials.com as part of an ongoing series showcasing your glory (like so).
That’s it. Just email us your photo from the northern terminus (or southern for the SOBOs), trail name, and completion date here.
“Why would I want a book about thru-hiking the PCT when I just thru-hiked the PCT?” you ask.
Pacific Crest Trials features an entire chapter dedicated to the transition after a thru-hike (including how to stave off or minimize post-trail depression), which for many, can be even more difficult than the original adaptation to life on the trail. If you’ve recently completed a thru-hike, you know what I’m talking about. There’s a reason it’s such a common topic on this site (all separate links, just a small sample of articles that touch on this issue).
In the off chance that doesn’t float your boat, the book is incredibly blue. It’ll really spice up your library.
And, if in a pinch, the book makes for excellent tinder. The flammable kind, not the swipe right variety.
Note: this offer is valid for those who are still currently thru-hiking. Email us here once you complete your journey.
