Consistent Inconsistency Along The Appalachian Trail: Hiking with a Member of the Opposite Sex, and a Dog
“Consistent Inconsistency” by Alan Strackeljahn will transport you back to a time when there were fewer hikers on the Appalachian Trail and exterior frame packs carrying thirty to fifty pounds of food and gear were the norm. If you thought hiking the Appalachian Trail was hard enough under those conditions, consider someone thru-hiking with their prospective spouse and her favorite dog. Immerse yourself in this vintage 1980s journal account, written in the same candid style as the celebrated online story "All in One Roll" by the same author, filled with over 50 photos taken during the five month trek, and perhaps pick up some pointers about what you might expect, or encounter on a hike from Georgia to Maine with a dog, or your partner. A great addition to the 1980’s hiking series of Gonzo!'s Appalachian Trail Journals.
