If it were possible I would make my own books free for Kindle and other eReaders. But I haven't quite figured that out yet. So for now, here are a few free PDFs of things that I have written if you were looking for something to read while you are traveling.
The title of the book is linked to the PDF, as is its cover, and where appropriate the link to its description page is at the bottom of the post if you are interested in knowing more.
If you want to know what's coming out next try Upcoming Books.

Backpacking Austin, or as it is also known, Homeless in Austin.

Thru Hiking the Oregon Coast Trail, or the OCT, is an amazing long-distance hike which runs the length of Oregon, from the Columbia River to the Oregon/California border.
My own, very rough, Quick and Dirty Oregon Coast Trail Thru Hiker's Guide which uses the free Oregon Coast Trail Maps available from the state of Oregon.
Just be aware that the last few sections are a little thin on information as I never finished detailing this guide. Find more on the Oregon Coast Trail Thru Hike Guide
After Katahdin is a short book about life after a thru hike of the Appalachian Trail. It is about how I had problems adjusting to a so-called "normal" life. It is an intimate look at my post thru hike depression.
It was not the best of times, and I am not entirely proud of how I behaved off-trail.
