Summary
You reach a certain age. You have a lifestyle many would envy. Still, something doesn't feel right. Life's become routine. You sense there's more out there to experience and explore. There's an urge gnawing away inside you to do something different. But what? Before Kathryn Barnes knew it, plans had snowballed - she'd quit her city job and flown to America to begin living life int he wild, walking hundreds of miles along the Pacific Crest Trail. The Unlikeliest Backpacker chronicles Kathryn and her husband Conrad's life-changing journey as aspiring long-distance hikers. With Canada eye-wateringly far away, they had to learn to backpack while surviving everything the famous trail threw at them - mosquitoes, mountains, malnutrition, and many, many, miles. How hard could it be? Very hard, as it turns out! But also deeply rewarding. Kathryn's entertaining memoir proves that you don't have to be special, or an experienced adventure junkie to disconnect from the modern world and play out the journey of a lifetime
