The adventure of a lifetime as experienced by two middle-aged buddies who challenged The West Coast Trail and survived to tell the tale. Not a travel guide, this is the true life story of backpacking one of the world's top-ten hiking trails that explores the experience from a physical, emotional, and even a spiritual perspective. Told with humor and insight, it offers every reader inspiration.
Danger, belly laughs, inspiration, white sand beaches, old growth forests, mud, tree roots, river crossings, straining muscles, incredible views and two friends who probably had no business even attempting the West Coast Trail. This is the true life adventure, as reported by a middle aged traveler, who finds that a life changing event becomes both life-altering and life-affirming during the seven day wilderness hike on Vancouver Island's rugged west coast.
Robert J Bannon takes the reader on a journey they will not soon forget as he uses a self deprecating form of humor, combined with a sense of drama, to transport his readers from the preparation phase, to the actual hike and then through the incredible insights that followed. The West coast Trail challenged the author on every level imaginable including physically, mentally, and at a much deeper level that is conveyed in dramatic fashion for the reader to experience along with him.
