Default Andrew Skurka at Campmor Retail Store

Andrew Skurka, long distance, Ultimate Hiker will be appearing at the Campmor Retail Store in Paramus NJ. On Friday, 3.30.12 @ 7PM & Saturday, 3.31.12 @ 10:30AM. He will be speaking about his "Circling the Yukon" Alaska trip on Friday 3.30. On Saturday, 3.31 he will be speaking about gear and How-To do it based on his new book the “Ultimate Hiker's Guide - Tools & Techniques to Hit the Trail". He will show slides from his trips and take questions. With over 30,000 miles under his belt this should be fun and informative.
The talks are FREE. Seating is limited so arrive early. Books will be available for sale. Autographs only on books sold that day. Campmor Retail Store - 810 Route 17 North, Paramus, NJ 07652. This will be Andrew’s only metro NJ appearance. Don’t miss it.

Maybe he can help a few customers with their shoe purchases, as it appears that the regular store employees are unwilling to perform this task.

I'm looking forward to reading his new book. I wonder if he will be at Trail Days.

Andrew Skurka is a very interesting guy, but I've always wondered how the heck he found the time to hike over 30,000 miles? I love the fact that he was able to do it, but again, how did he find the time?

Doesn't he hike 50ish miles a day? You can knock off 1,000+ miles a month doing that. It adds up.

Just a reminder that Andre Skurka will be at the store Friday and Saturday. Parking is limited and seating is free. So come early and consider carpooling. It will also be webcast LIVE on Google + HANGOUTS if you cn't make it and can tear yourself away from CAR TALK. Campmor's Google+ Hangout information.

Hope you can make it.
