    This is a decent hiking memoir, but the writer is such a selfish, whiny, inconsiderate jerk that I had to dock a star because I almost gave up on it a few times During a lull in his journalism career, Dan White became obsessed with hiking the Pacific Crest Trail, a 2,650 mile trek that starts at the southern tip of California and runs north all the way to the Canadian border This is the same trail that Cheryl Strayed wrote about in her bestselling book, Wild Dan is thrilled that his girlfri This is...

    Aiieeeee, the author of this book comes off as totally unbearable He is, by his own admission, colossally self absorbed and woefully ignorant of even the basics of backpacking There were some choices he made along the trail that really raised my eyebrows, but the one that took the cake was dumping out HALF HIS WATER SUPPLY on the...

    This book blows hot and cold for me I love descriptions of this sort of lonely struggle I really have trouble getting behind folk who are foolishly and dangerously unprepared I grew to like the Lois and Clark Expedition, but as the book wore on I lost patience with the author who just can t seem to get his sh t together The part that rings the most true is the ambiguity when it is all over There are books out there that, after the Great Feat is complete, the scales fall from one s eyes and This book blows hot and cold for me I love descriptions of this sort of lonely struggle I really have trouble getting behind folk who are foolishly and dangerously unprepared I grew to like the Lo...

    A very poor cousin of Bill Bryson s far superior A Walk in the Woods, Dan White s memoir of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail is justirritating and hollow than interesting or fun to read White comes across like a douchebag with nearly everyone he encounters, and his anecdotes ring completely false He s also not nearly as funny or endearing as he seems to think he is But mainly I just can t get over the feeling that White is a liar He claims to have grown up in California and had a guidebo A very poor cousin of Bill Bryson s far superior A Walk in the Woods, Dan White s memoir of hiking the Pacific Crest Trail is justirritating and hollow than interesting or fun to read White comes across like a douchebag with nearly everyone he encounters, and his anecdotes ring completely false He s also not nearly as funny or endearing as he seems to think he is But mainly I just can t get over the feeling that White is a liar He claims to have grown up in California and had a guidebook for the PCT yet somehow was shocked, UTTERLY SHOCKED that it was snowing on him in the desert How could he not know this He claims to have just shown up at Mt Whitney and decided to go up and hike it that very day There s no indication he had any issues getting a permit to do this which is a definite proble...

    I found this book extremely hard to read The author comes across as an arrogant jerk, without the wit, charm, or good writing skills to make it bearable He finds fault in every person adn situation he comes across. would not recommend.

    What is it with these long distance PCT hikers who go on to write a book Are all of them such noxious personalities I disliked Cheryl Strayed s book Wild for the same reason I disliked the Cactus Eaters the author is a jerk although Cheryl Strayed was not nearly as annoying as this guy I will admit, I finished this book, but I really detest when I am not rooting for the author in a book like this I wanted that trail to smack this guy down hard, and satisfyingly it does, many times The ti What is it with these long distance PCT hikers who go on to write a book Are all of them such noxious personalities I disliked Cheryl Strayed s book Wild for the same reason I disliked the Cactus Eaters the author is a jerk although Cheryl Strayed was not nearly as annoying as this guy I will admit, I finished this book, but I really detest when I am not rooting for the author in a book like this I wanted that trail to smack this guy down hard, and satisfyingly it does, many times The ticks, the cactus, the bout of giardia, the whole shebang, but most of all I wanted Al...

    Although the book had a few funny sections, the author spent way too much time whining, complaining, and blaming everyone else for his troubles including John Muir Unprepared and just plain stupid While I appreciated the historical facts woven into this retelling of his hiking adventure, this really had nothing to do with the PCT I found the author to be single minded, whiny, and self absorbed Appar...

    This is one of the best and most well written PCT books Ive read While my two main criticisms of PCT trail log books apply here, too, I can understand why 1 The authors, a la Bill Bryson, head out into the wilderness woefully unprepared OK, a big part of the reason it s an interesting read is that it s a voyage of discovery for him if this were an ultra experienced hiker setting out, there wouldn t be as much to wri...

    While I really like reading backpacking narrative, this book made me want to bang my head against the wall I mean, after walking up to a bear that roars at you, you really go off and chase it Really That seems like a good idea The author spends a lot of time proving tha...
