I love books about hiking and the outdoors so this was a natural pick for me and it didn't disappoint. It was funny and meaningful at the same time. It didn't have that "I found myself" cliche that most books of this genre have. It was simply a fun story about a couple of guys who tried, and sometimes failed, to do something extremely hard. Yes, they discovered things about themselves and each other as they went along, but it never became cliche.
