    Default New AT memoir

    A new AT memoir is out. A real gem. Derrick "Mr. Fabulous" Lugo, a NYC guy with no hiking or camping experience, takes on the AT in "The Unlikely Thru-Hiker An Appalachian Trail Journey". Triple H: Humanity, Humility, Humor.

    Usually when someone promotes a commercial item on WB, they disclose (yay or nay) any connections. Just so you know.

    I read a little of it on Amazon. Seems like an entertaining account.

    Personally, I could care less whether someone discloses a connection, or non connection. I don’t buy anything based on one opinion.

    This book was advertised in the AMC Outdoors magazine the fall 2019 issue (they are the publishers). I got curious. I got the book. I read it over the weekend. I loved every page. That's all there's to it.
