    I am preparing to thru hike the JMT in July and really struggled with the various options to record my adventure. I have considered small point and shoot cameras, go pro cameras and waterproof adventure cameras. In the end I have decided just to bring my I phone 6s , a small Anker battery and a solar charger. I’ll switch most of my apps off but can read your book, listen to music and take photos without having so many devices. And when I’m done, I can call my wife so she can pick me up!

      I took my 6S on the JMT last year for the first time. It was fantastic! I highly recommend looking into getting audio books instead of or in addition to e-books. Audio uses a tiny fraction of the power needed to light up the screen for an ebook

      The main things to remember are:

      1) airplane mode (or equivalent)
      2) turn the brightness WAY down — as low as possible

    Hi Ray,

    I bought your book a few years ago. I forgot the name of the file. I know it’s somewhere in my google drive. What filename should I search for?
