The PCT Hiker's Handbook: The book that started the switch to lightweight hiking and backpacking. Published in the winter of 1991 and Copyrighted a few months later, in the spring of 1992. Went on to eventually become Trail Life, the updated version.
"Along the way I met other thru-hikers, and was surprised to find most of them were also following many, if not all, of the Handbook's methods. What a change from the previous year when everyone had heavy packs and boots." - Scott Williamson, 1994
Scott Williamson was among the first to read this book and use its concepts on a PCT thru-hike in 1993. He and his hiking friends also coined the term "Ray Way". Here is his Story, written a year later, in 1994.
