25 Feb Way Out There ~ A Discussion with Author J.R. Harris
On February 24th viewer gathered over Zoom for the Joy Trip Reading Project Book Discussion with our guest J.Robert Harris, author of “Way Out There ~ Adventures of a Wilderness Trekker”. Harris has been exploring and backpacking long distance for more than 60 years in some of the most remote and inhospitable wilderness areas in the world, unsupported and mostly alone. He has written numerous articles about his experiences, as well as the book we discussed in this lively online forum.
Harris is a frequent speaker at schools, universities, and outdoors organizations such as the AMC, Sierra Club, ADK, Audubon Society, the Explorers Club, L.L. Bean, and REI. His objective is to share his experiences to hopefully motivate others to pursue a healthy outdoors lifestyle.
