I Just Wanna Be Hiker Trash (Thru-hikers, Backpackers, and Outdoor Adventurers)

Scott "Hell Ya Jesus" Hughes

What the hell is "Hiker Trash?" Some wear the term as a badge of honor, others use it in disgust, but Hiker Trash is more than a mere adjective for a dirty thru-hiker. Hiker Trash is a philosophy, a way of life, potentially even a catalyst for finding meaning. Thru-hiker, Scott "Hell Ya Jesus" Hughes, shares and explores what it really means to be Hiker Trash through personal anecdotes and interviews with hikers, adventurers and all those who challenge the status quo in Hiker Trash fashion
