Publisher's Summary

Bored and fed up with life, staring down a 50th birthday, Mike Tyler was looking for a change. Life had become routinized and unexciting. Maybe it was a mid-life crisis, or maybe just a yearning for one last big adventure. Mike decides to try hiking from Mexico to Canada on the Pacific Crest Trail, just to see what happens.

Mike convinces his wife, Margo, to join him. Together, they embark on a five-month hike full of anticipation. They hike through some of the most stunning and remote places in the country on a trail full of unique, offbeat characters. But the trail had even more to offer than either of them had anticipated.

great story for interest in hiking

The story itself was great. didn't care for the narrator. I don't mind a single narrator just didn't care for the way the story was read

Somewhat disappointed

I’m not sure if it was the tone of the writing or the reader’s voice, but so many times I felt like I was listening to immature and whining conversations. Often the author made rash descriptions or judgments ... thankfully he included the fact that he DID later evolve his thinking, but it felt so awkward in between. I can’t quite put my finger in it.

The story was certainly valuable enough to hear to the end, but it was frustrating to listen to. Now I’m wondering if this would have been better to read rather than listen. (?)

A conversational book

I finished but I got super tired of the simple dialogue. Do they really talk like that in real life? Margot said” gee I’m really hungry”. Author said “ wow! I’m hungry too.... let’s eat”. The whole book is like this. If your looking for a good PCT book read “Thirst” or “Thru hiking will break your heart”.

A couple's hike

I've listened to several thru-hiking adventures, hoping to do my own someday. I am 37 and felt like the sentiments, experiences and values of this writer more closely aligned to mine than any others. To listen to a couples adventure on the trail was refreshing and unique! I enjoyed it immensely.

One of the best thru hiking stories I have read.

Great story and easy to read. I have listened to a lot of thru hiking memoirs and this is definitely one of the best.
