What I’m reading: A Walk in the Woods

I just finished reading Bill Bryson’s A Walk in the Woods, a humorous account of the author’s adventures while hiking the Appalachian Trail. The book includes some history and ecology, as well. A fine example of immersion journalism (in which the reporter takes part in the event he’s writing about), the narrative is both entertaining and informative.

What outdoor adventure have you gone on that you could write about? What story could you tell that an armchair traveler would enjoy?
