Okay, fair enough.
Maybe you're wondering:
"Why would this free Happy Trails newsletter be of any use to me?"
Well, here's what a reader named Giuliana has to say about it:
I'm guessing that no matter where you fall in the spectrum of outdoor enthusiasts, you'd be open to some of the best hiking tips for women hikers.

And I'd love to share fresh hiking and backpacking news with you!

My hiking addiction means that I:
All of that devotion to hiking adds up to a woman who is bursting to share with other hikers.
Thus, Happy Trails newsletter!
And to show you how dedicated I am, here's a photo of me in my "office" (on Banshee Peak, near Mt. Rainier).
So here's where you come into the picture.
Everything I share in my Happy Trails newsletter is useful to female hikers of all ages:
Although it's packed with information, this brief monthly update is quick to skim and digest, so reading Happy Trails won't eat into your trail time.
Here's a sampling of what you will find in a quick-to-read format.
I might critique the book I just finished about the outdoors, or a book I know is important for skill building.
Maybe I'll provide a summary of a research article on hiking nutrition.
Or share a hot tip on a brand new hiking resource.
And I'm always on the look out for sources of hiking information, making your suggestions for a review in the newsletter both welcome and appreciated.

I will only pass along what I myself have tried, or what someone I trust on the trail has tried.

Here's where I share the latest resources and fonts of knowledge that I've discovered:
You won't miss a thing if you subscribe to the Happy Trails newsletter, because all new articles are in one handy spot.
Send me your question, and I can share it, along with my answer.
And it satisfies my retired teacher persona, too. I'm very familiar with question and answer sessions from my decades in the classroom.
If you've got a hot tip or some trail advice, I'd be happy to share it with our community of trail buddies.
Don't be shy - pay it forward!
It's fun to find out how this bounty of hiking information is being shared and used, as in this testimonial:
