2017 Project #1

Backpacking Virginia

Johnny is once again pairing with esteemed University of North Carolina Press for a book. In this guide, Johnny will detail 40 backpacking destinations in the Old Dominion. Johnny will use his discerning expertise in writing guides (plus personal adventuring throughout the US), combined with feedback from two decades of readers, directed by an eye for creating not only a mosaic of different experiences visually but also different experiences in difficulty. So, when putting together the list of backpacks in Virginia Johnny will layer different types of trips in different places with varying layers of difficulty.  Destinations range from Cumberland Gap National Park in the west, to False Cape State Park in the East. Estimated release date Spring, 2018.
