Maps & Apps on Trails & Routes

I’ll be giving another presentation next week for the American Long Distance Hiking Association – West (ALDHA-WEST) for their annual ruck on March 9.

This will be a one of several break-out sessions about using maps and apps on routes and trails. The keynote speaker will be from “LarryBoy” who hiked a 2,500 mile desert route connecting Arizona, Utah, and Idaho.

I’ve been participating in rucks for years…they are usually in person and help prepare hikers for the upcoming thru-hiking season, but because of COVID the event will be virtual this year.

What is a ruck you might be asking? Ruck is the German word for backpacking, and has been used through the trail community as a name for an event that helps you get out and backpack.

So join me on Wednesday, March 9 at 5pm PST.
