Jeff “Legend” Garmire is an adventurer who climbed the Colorado 14ers, survived The Great Western Loop, broke the Arizona Trail self-supported FKT, Long Trail Unsupported FKT, and the Colorado Trail Unsupported FKT and much more.
Free Outside is his telling of his Calendar Year Triple Crown: Appalachian Trail, Pacific Crest Trail, Continental Divide Trail.
I listened to the audio version which Jeff reads himself.
Fast paced. No dull moments.
8000 miles averaging over 30 miles a day.
I enjoyed the book.
It’s real to his experience. So real that no editor seems to have corrected spelling nor typos.
Seemed to me the CDT would be my least favourite of the three — overall. Too many cows. Too much dirty drinking water.
