Meet Guthook, aka Ryan Linn, our latest addition to the Trail Ambassador family. Ryan is a long-distance backpacker, dedicated to ultralight hiking and spreading stories of the trail. He got his start with lightweight packing during a through-hike of the Appalachian Trail in 2007, then honed his abilities on the New England Trail in 2009 (on which he was one of the first to complete a through-hike). His backpacking adventures continued with the Pacific Crest Trail in 2010, and will undoubtedly add more long-distance hiking trails in the years to come. In the meantime, he spends most of his time in his home of Northern New England, piling on the miles and ever searching for a way to go lighter without sacrificing comforts. Check out more about him at his Trail Ambassador page.
