Or keep reading for the "back story" about the book.
The hiking tips in Hiking For Her's dayhiking tips book can be blamed on my addiction to hiking.
My obsession with hiking began innocently enough, with an invitation to join a Girl Scout backpacking trip to Isle Royale National Park in Lake Superior. Let's leave the date a bit vague, but call it 1970-ish.
Give a girl a backpack, and she's gonna want boots.
Give her sturdy boots, and she's gonna want a compass.
You get the idea!
Five decades later, I'm still hiking, but now I'm writing down my best hiking tips for hikers.
Over the years, these hiking tips have really piled up (over 350 pages and growing). It's getting to be a challenge to find exactly what you need in the maze of interconnected hiking tips.
But I'm guessing that you want something a little faster when you have questions about day hiking. You need answers NOW!

Each of the ten chapters give you easy to follow specific advice to apply before, during and after your dayhike.

The reviews of this dayhiking tips book on my Amazon author page will let you evaluate whether or not this book hits the mark for hikers.
Here's what one reader says:
"This book is absolutely packed with information. As an experienced hiker myself, I wasn't sure this book would be for me but WOW was I wrong. Diane has tips in here that I had never even thought of, especially the sections on what to eat and how to choose great footwear."
Putting yourself “out there” on a hiking trail is an expression of your adventurous spirit.
But along with relishing that exhilarating sense of adventure, you need to control the essential factors that make you a dayhiker: footwear, backpack, hiking clothes, trail food, planning your destination - and more.
Having firm control over these variables puts you in a position of strength to deal with unpredictable events like nasty weather, animal encounters, and misadventures in map reading.
It also makes your day hike much more enjoyable.
If you're just starting out as a hiker, you will save yourself a ton of time and money by reading and applying these hiking tips.
Been day hiking for a while but have a few gear, navigation, or food issues that you'd like to solve or improve?
Need a gift for the hiker(s) in the family?
It is my sincere wish that you will benefit from my labor of love to collect decades of dayhiking experience into one book.
Can you see that I really mean it when I say that HFH gives you hiking advice you can trust?
That's why I've gathered together a

Oh, and one more small reason: A dayhiking tips book for women was such a joy to write!
