Hey all –
Wanted to publicize the release of a new hiking aid for the Hayduke Trail, the "Hayduke Trail Hiking Resources Bundle." Odd name, I know, but it truly is a "bundle" of information.
There are four parts to it:
(1) a Handbook, which has three parts: information for "Before You Go," for "As You Go," and, for "As You Go, If You Want" – the last part contains info about the region's history, culture, public policy issues, and natural sciences;
(2) a Water Chart;
(3) a Databook, including data for some of the more popular alternate routes; and
(4) a Mapset developed using National Geographic TOPO! – there is both a 7.5-minute and 30- x 60-minute map series.
The cost for the entire Bundle is $35. When you consider how much time went into developing this information, and when you consider the alternative of developing it yourself -– which, in addition to a lot of time, would require $130+ in mapping software purchases – I think this is an excellent price.
If you are interested in the Bundle, you can read a lot more information about it and purchase it from my website at this page: http://www.andrewskurka.com/store/bundle_HDT.php.
