    The REI Member Dividend

    The REI dividend is a unique benefit of membership in the REI co-op. It's comprised of your member refund—typically 10% back on eligible purchases—and/or your REI Visa® card rebates.

    Each March, active REI members and REI Visa cardholders who earned a rebate receive a refund in the form of an annual dividend notice.

    Only active members receive annual dividend notices. To maintain your active status as an REI member, you need to make net merchandise or shipping purchases of at least $10 per year, unless you joined that year. Member numbers are issued in one name and only that person receives the member refund. Your number can be used by others in your family, but it cannot be transferred to someone else.

    Questions? Call us at 1-800-426-4840 for more about your dividend or its redemption.

    The Barefoot Sisters: Southbound narrates the journey of 2 sisters as they take on the Appalachian Trail—without shoes.

    • Authors: Lucy and Susan Letcher
    • Softcover; 474 pages
    • Stackpole Books; copyright 2009

    At the ages of 25 and 21, Lucy and Susan Letcher set out to accomplish what thousands of people attempt each year: through hike the entire 2,175 mi. of the Appalachian Trail. The difference between them and the others? They decided to hike the trail barefoot. Quickly earning themselves the moniker of the Barefoot Sisters, the two begin their journey at Mount Katahdin and spent 8 months making their way to Springer Mountain in Georgia. As they hike, they write about their adventures through the 100 Mile Wilderness, the rocky terrain of Pennsylvania, and snowfall in the Great Smoky Mountains—a story filled with humor and determination. It's as close as one can get to hiking the Appalachian Trail without strapping on a pack.

    Made in USA.

    The Barefoot Sisters: Southbound is rated 5.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 5 out of 5 by from realistic and entertaining I've read many many books on the Appalachian Trail and this was one of my favorites (if not THE favorite). It's a realistic depiction of life on the AT, and it was written with grace, humor, and wit. If you want to know what life's like on the AT, and you want an entertaining read at the same time, this is a great place to start.
