My authors copies just arrived today and I wanted to share. In addition to our regular monthly column in Trail Blazer magazine we had a feature article this month on lightweight Horse Camping, or camping away from the trailhead without pack stock.
We had a ball last year camping off of our horses in several wilderness areas as we worked to refine our technique to keep weight and volume as low as possible. By last September we had our gear and food weight down to just under 10 pounds for each of us (of course that's excluding tack).
Once the weather breaks we're really looking forward to further refining and taking tons of pics for the book we're writing on the subject. Pretty much each paragraph in the article is a full chapter in the book. It's still rough but my editor seems pleased. We hope to have it out by Christmas.
At any rate you can see how we camp without pack stock in the back country by reading the article, or download the PDF, here.
All the best.
