5.0 von 5 Sternen Standardwerk für Trekking über lange Distanzen 1. Juni 2010
Format:Taschenbuch
Immer dann wenn jemand nachweislich über sehr viel Erfahrung
in seinem Gebiet verfügt, darf man schon mal hinschaun, wenn
diese Person dann ein Buch schreibt.

Chris Townsend, der nebenbei Redakteur bei Großbritanniens
größtem Outdoormagazin (TGO) ist, hat nach 1000den von Trekkingkilometern
seine Erfahrungen in dieses Buch fließen lassen.

Daa Buch ist eigentlich an Leute gerichtet, die schon Trekkingerfahrung
haben und jetzt längere Touren planen, bietet sich in meinen Augen aber
auch für Anfänger an.

Trails, Planung, die richtige Ausrüstung, Wasser und Hygiene und andere
für lange Toure abseits der Zivilisation relevante Themen werden besprochen
und das Buch hat für mich persönlich einen höheren Mehrwert als die Bücher
von Rainer Höh, der im deutschsprachigen Raum wohl präferiert wird.

Klar, das Buch ist englisch, allerdings muss man auf den weltweit interessantesten
Treks ja auch englisch können, oder?

3.0 von 5 Sternen unnecessary? 19. März 2002
Von tim - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
The first time i glanced at this book I thought that i was looking at 'The Backpackers Handbook', also by Townsend. This seemed, and still seems to be, more or less a duplication of that previous guide. If you don't own the 'Handbook', then definitely check this out, I really like Chris' open-minded writing and hiking style.
The only new information in 'Advanced Backpacker' is brief; and can be found on the internet or in your library for free. But if you really want a wholesome guide to carry with you, then this should be the one.

5.0 von 5 Sternen Excellent advice but somewhat outdated 5. Juni 2010
Von Lizard - Veröffentlicht auf Amazon.com
Format:Taschenbuch
I disagree with the other reviewer who compares this book to Townsend's "Backpacker's Handbook." The Handbook covers the basics of hiking equipment - in this book, Townsend assumes you know the basics, and covers only the adjustments to gear necessary for a long hike. Even with that caveat, there are some simply excellent discussions here - for example, its got the best breakdown of boot fitting I've come across.

More importantly though, Townsend uses this book to discuss at length topics aimed at, for lack of a better term, "advanced backpackers." Things like how to prep and plan for a thruhike. How to plan an extended route through an area where there are no trails, based only off the information available on maps. How to do menu and resupply planning for a multimonth hike. Snow camping and travel in early season mountainous terrain. It is discussions like these where this book shines. Townsend's expertise comes through to differentiate this book from the many others targeted to weekend hikers. I first picked this book up after my PCT hike in 2000, and immediately recognized it as the book I was looking for before my hike. It would have saved me unnecessary pain.

With that being said, the book is somewhat dated today. While much of Townsend's advice still holds, these days, its much easier to access information. Hundreds of former thru-hikers are immediately available through discussion forums to answer questions, and incredibly detailed posts are freely available on any bit of hiking minutiae you can think of. Like the other "advanced hiking" books by Roland Mueser and Karen Berger, this book is sadly somewhat of a relic these days. If you consider yourself an "advanced backpacker" though, its still worth getting ahold of, to access the author's expertise on some relatively esoteric subjects.

This book is older by copyright, but the information is still relevant. I value Chris's experience, and enjoy his books.
