This book is the author's first published work. From 1995 to 1998 it sold over 35,000 copies.... not bad for a self-published book.
This first edition is currently
out of print. This book is a classic, because it was the FIRST hiking and camping guidebook ever written that used the Global Positioning System to guide the reader down trails, to campsites and historical markers, and into remote areas of wilderness.
The book was originally published by Telson Communications, Inc. (Telson USA), it was originally printed by Rose Printing Company.
Featuring hand-painted (with Corel's "Paint" program) 7" x 10" full color covers, and acid-free paper, perfect bound, lay-flat binding, the book has become a much sought-after collector's item.
Originally priced at $35.00, this book was in demand as far away as Australia, even though the camping / hiking trips were limited to New York and New Jersey, and part of Pennsylvania. The reason for the overseas demand was its excellent technical section, which taught the reader how to navigate using GPS receivers, and how to modify them for increased performance. Also included in the book are several
recipes which are now on this web site, and a section on Murphy's Laws, Proverbs and Old Sayings, and other things that made the book a BLAST to read around a campfire.
The original book came with a 1.44MB diskette which included the short
Novella "Delta Seven"
