About this project

  
You can expect valuable and trust worthy information from Steve Stuebner's trail descriptions and maps -- accentuated by the stunningly beautiful photography of Mark Lisk. We'd like to think it's a partnership that brings outstanding value to Idaho outdoor adventurers.

Risks and challenges

After the fun part involving logging and GPS'ing all of the trails, experiencing them first-hand, the main challenges involve putting the whole guidebook together in terms of layout, photography, trail descriptions and maps. It takes literally hundreds of hours to pull this off.

And then, sometimes things can go sideways at the printer. We hope that doesn't happen with this project, but sometimes there are delays or mistakes. Inevitably, these things get worked out with due diligence. We plan to produce a high-quality product on time and on budget.

A pre-sales campaign like Kickstarter is a wonderful way to raise money for a project when funds are needed for book production, publishing, promotions, etc. We really appreciate your support! See you at the book-launch party!
