Chris Townsend set off to hike the Pacific Northwest Trail [PNT] in 2010, and I followed his adventure with interest on Twitter and via his blog. A few weeks ago his latest book about his thru-hike came out, and it was such a good read that I had a hard time to put Grizzly Bears and Razor Clams down. A Book Review.
The last time I interviewed Mike was in April 2010, as Hyperlite Mountain Gear had just arrived on the doorstep of the Ultralight Cottage Gear maker scene. Two years on HMG has made it to the pages of several big outdoor magazines, has got high praise from Ryan Jordan at BackpackingLight.com, and has received lots of favourable reviews of their gear. Time to sit down once more and see how the company has developed.
