Publisher's Summary

A man walked into the woods, destined to spend eight months living in the wild. Exhausted and emotionally ruined living the fast-paced life of a successful young professional, it was all too easy to give up. The challenges came on the adventure of a lifetime. Months in the woods that would provide adversity, healing, and tranquility. Setting out to thru-hike the Pacific Crest Trail, Appalachian Trail, and Continental Divide Trail in a single calendar year was an audacious goal but the 8,000 mile Calendar Year Triple Crown would be the story of a lifetime. 

The journey was riddled with inclement weather, shady characters, wildlife attacks, and injuries. The trails crossed frozen rivers, were rerouted around wildfires, and packed with snow. The physical challenge was soon overshadowed by the mental toughness required. It became a mental battle. 

Free Outside is a captivating story of strength and courage. Hiking through remote areas in America, Jeff is continually overwhelmed by the kindness and generosity of strangers. Free Outside is the fascinating story of Jeff Garmire’s journey along the national scenic trails that define wild America.

Narrated by the author: Jeff Garmire. Enjoy this story of hiking 8,000 miles along the triple crown trails of America.

Inspiring

Well done Jeff. I loved your story and. Found it both inspiring and fascinating. I love stories of personal adventure and overcoming adversity. I hope you find another adventure to document and share with us in the future. My only criticism and this hopefully is constructive would be the lack of punctuation in the narration. The sentences seemed to flow into each other without natural pause. All that aside you inspired me and I loved the book. Well done and well played for doing it to bring peoples attention to depression and how it affects anyone.
