This evening after kick boxing (or as I often say box kicking) I stopped in at Chapters at Granville and Broadway. "Leap of Faith - Queen Noor" caught my eye and so for just under $8 I picked it up. I'm only a few pages in but decided to google Jordan, one thing leads to another and I stumbled upon a very simply, informative, well written web called Backpacking: Budget Indepen....anyhow check it out.
I'm most likely over my backpacking stage - but never say never - but this would have been (and still is) such a useful site for anyone thinking of heading out to the wild. Don't wait. Just go and do it.
