Along with the surprises.
And give aways!
The name is a play on words.
Same idea here!
In every monthly edition, you'll find tempting, easy to digest hiking information on a variety of topics all of us hikers love.
You already feed your hard working hiking body with tasty trail mix.
Now you can feed your mind with all of this hiking goodness!
The hiking trail mix you munch on usually combines an abundance of sweet, salty and surprising savory bites.
That's why this Trail Mix is organized into 3 categories of abundant information every hiker needs:
Every monthly issue is jam packed with articles, crafted to make your hikes satisfying, safe and successful.
Colorful photographs of hiking trails and destinations, wildlife, seasonal plants and flowers, and hikers in action in some spectacular scenery are just a bonus!
Let's take a peek at what you will find in your Trail Mix, based on the "rule of three" outlined above.
Beginners, intermediate hikers and seasoned trail veterans all need to plan for a successful hike.

On every hike, you can put the tips in this section of Trail Mix to good use:
As a reader, you can always suggest a topic to be covered in an upcoming edition, too.

One thing to note:
Every issue of Trail Mix is written from the perspective of a hiker in the northern hemisphere. So if you're in the Southern hemisphere, the seasons will be flipped.
You pay a low $2.99 per issue during this introductory phase.
Why so low for over 35 pages of exclusive hiking goodness plus a give away every month?
And here's the real reason: it's something low cost yet tasty to look forward to as the seasons turn and you add more miles to your boots.
Future issues will increase in cost as the amount of information (and thus the format, labor and overhead) expands.
But there will be a special deal for the first wave of readers, you can be sure of that!
No. What you read in Trail Mix stays in Trail Mix.
No one else will have access to all of these tips, techniques, solutions, gear hacks, give aways, research findings, and trail news.
If you decide to skip Trail Mix, no worries!
There are three reasons for this new offering:
There is never enough room in Happy Trails (see above) to share all of the hiking news, reviews, updates, and tips that I gather and create each month.
It's fun to pull together "all things hiking" for you in a fresh, easy to read format!
My background in human biology allows me to bring a "never stop learning" scientist's eye and teacher's heart to this endeavor.
There you have it: three good reasons for offering you some delicious Trail Mix :)
In exchange for $2.99 per month, you receive all of this in Trail Mix Monthly Hiking Digest:
