Best Tent Camping: Utah, 2nd edition
Jeffrey Steadman


Camping Guide to Utah Highlights Best Spots to Sleep Under the Stars Snowcapped mountains, forested wilderness, red-rock canyons, and hidden backcountry—Utah offers some of the most diverse and breathtaking campground settings in the world.
Best Tent Camping: Utah, by Jeffrey Steadman, provides a guide to the 50 best places in the state to pitch a tent and spend the night—without being bothered by the noise of loud portable stereos, large recreational vehicles, and crowds. Jeffrey zigzagged the state to create this in-depth look at Utah’s best tent camping locations, including alternatives to the busy campgrounds in Utah’s five national parks. In addition to providing campers with essential information about each campground (including season, rates, facilities, and how to reserve a site), the guide identifies the best sites at the best campgrounds, offers information on exciting day trips, suggests hikes and activities accessible from the campgrounds, and describes the flora and fauna that campers might encounter on a trip.
Whether campers are seeking a quiet site beside a peaceful stream or a cliffside camp overlooking beautiful canyons, Best Tent Camping: Utah is an indispensable guide for the person who likes to sleep in a tent not far from the convenience of the car.

NOC Stories: Changing Lives at the Nantahala Outdoor center Since 1972



NOC Stories describes the Nantahala Outdoor Center’s first 25 years, a time of explosive growth in whitewater sports and instruction. NOC Stories by Payson Kennedy and Greg Hlavaty presents a history of the Nantahala Outdoor Center as seen through the eyes of early leaders and some of its dedicated staff. This history spans the years 1972-1997 and approaches the story of the NOC’s inception and growth in conjunction with the explosive growth of paddlesports and paddle instruction; in a very real sense, the great strides in paddle instruction and the growth of whitewater sports parallels the growth of the NOC. Many people today see the Nantahala Outdoor Center (NOC) for what it has become: a seminal Southeastern paddling hub and profitable business. What they don’t know is that the NOC started with a semi-utopian vision, the idea that friends could work together at pursuits they were passionate about, and that this endeavor would not only be profitable for the company, but also life-changing for the individual. That’s not something many businesses can say, but in the case of NOC, it’s turned out to be true. If you asked current culture-makers and business owners in the whitewater industry about their formative years, you’d find many were previous staff members, clinic participants, and visitors at the NOC. You’d likely also hear that the NOC was instrumental in refining their skillset and in inspiring them to become pioneers in their field. From rafting to river rescue, paddling instruction to Olympic competition, the one thing this diverse group has in common is the NOC. These people are the stories that have become the NOC’s legacy, and this book is an attempt to collect and make sense of them. But the book also features a very human element, a tinge of adventure that sets it apart from your standard history text. The stories in this book, in addition to their historical value, offer a testament to the experiential aspect of working at the NOC, that ineffable change that has affected so many staff and that forms the basis for outdoor adventure programs. The NOC was, and is, a dream; these are the stories of its dreamers.

    Rowed Trip
    Colin and Julie Angus


        From the rugged highlands of Scotland, husband and wife team Julie and Colin Angus rowed more than 7,000 km to Aleppo, Syria in the heart of the Middle East. Their course followed ancient transportation corridors traditionally used for trade and migration. They experienced and learned about the rich cultural tapestry that makes up present-day Europe, while in a manner that promotes environmentally responsible travel.

         Julie and Colin’s journey, completed in September 2008, along the traditional aquatic trading routes without using motors proved to be an ideal way to meet the people and explore the varied landscapes as they paddled through thirteen distinct countries.

        Connecting Scotland and Syria with a human-powered voyage also had a personal significance for the couple. Colin’s mother and father both hail from northern Scotland and Julie’s father is from Syria. The journey allowed the couple to explore their family histories. In an age where globalization and cultural integration is the norm, the journey allowed the duo to reflect on their origins and unravel the events that led to their union in western Canada.

        Two amphibious rowboats were constructed for the journey. The vessels each carry a bicycle and trailer which allowed them to travel on roads and bicycle paths as well as water.

        Route of Journey: From Dunnet Head at the northern tip of Scotland, the couple paddled along the coasts and through canal systems to southern England. Here they crossed the English Channel and continued into central Europe via the Rhine River. They reached the headwaters of the Danube River through a canal system and followed through Eastern Europe to the Black Sea. From here the team entered the Mediterranean through Turkey and continued to Syria.
