Beyond Backpacking : Ray Jardines Guide to Lightweight Hiking -- Ray Jardine; Paperback

Like Ray Jardine, I learned my camping and backpacking skills in Scouts. Like Ray, I was so prepared for any contingency that I could hardly lift my pack. Unlike Ray, I didn't figure it out for myself--I had to read his book.

Ray's basic theory is that if you pack light enough, you can travel 2 or 3 times further with the same energy. Although inspired by long-distance hiking, the techniques and ideas can make short trips more enjoyable.

I haven't tried everything in his book yet, but everything I have tried has worked. Ray's innovative challenge to conventional backpack thinking is nothing short of revolutionary.
