PRAISE FOR PREVIOUS EDITIONS:
“Blisters and Bliss . . . was like the Bible, only with fewer locusts and better maps. Seriously, hiking the West Coast Trail without Blisters and Bliss would be like chucking the owners’ manual out of the rocket ship before blasting into space.”
—Jack Knox, Stephen Leacock Medal for Humour nominee, author of Fortune Knox Once
“No Fuddy-duddies, authors Foster and Aitken provide solid information to hiking the West Coast Trail. Spiced with humorous anecdotes that only years of trail slogging could produce. The illustrations by Nelson Dewey are a delight.”
“At 145 pages, the book is thin enough to not be intimidating, but packs enough valuable information to be well worth the investment. There are route descriptions for every segment of the trail, and campsite recommendations for different treks lasting 5, 6, and 7 nights (north-to-south and vice-versa). And maybe best of all, the entire book is hilariously illustrated. Blisters and Bliss has been a WCT preparation favourite for over 30 years.”
