    I know. For goodness sakes - I want to read about real hikers. You know those who walk 15 to 25 miles a day, Northbound of course, starting in spring and finishing by October 15. I don't want to read about spirituality or diet or finding themselves, unless they find themselves at a trail magic station. I don't want to read what a quitter has to write, and if they average single digit days they may as well be a quitter in my, and their book. (sarcasm with a smile button)

    Another bit of irony in the book blurb...

    Long silent contemplation through unspoiled woods allows him to reconnect with the Creator - shedding fears, doubts, and anxieties - while his ongoing physical efforts reduce his bodyweight

    Uhhh... he claims to have quit after achieving only 14% of his goal because of Ta-DA! fears, doubts and anxieties, lol.

    No doubt he's trying to develop an ample audience of religious chumps who will help him monetize his "adventures".
