In 2017, approximately 4,000 people spent months studying and planning their epic adventure to thru-hike the Appalachian Trail. They paid from $1,500 to $4,000 on equipment, set aside four to seven months of their lives, budgeted $4,000 to $7,000 to spend while hiking, and arranged to get to a trailhead. These activities were all done with the anticipation of thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail. However, 80% of these people failed! This book was written by a professional startup/turnaround specialist who spent his entire career working with thousands of employees to improve the processes within their companies. It is from his own failed attempt at thru-hiking the Appalachian Trail that he says: "A process that has an 80% failure rate is the wrong process!" Based on two years of both primary and secondary research, this work explains new and innovative approaches to enjoying long distance hiking. This book is a game changer for not only those people in the 80% failure group but for all hikers who want to enjoy long distance hiking without all the pain. It is a how-to guide for the enormous number of people who want to hike long distances but are afraid they are not able to fulfill their dreams. Long distance hikers have been told they should not quit their dream of thru-hiking a long trail on a bad weather day or later, they will be sorry. Now, it needs to be said; they should not quit their dream without first reading this book.
