    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.

    From the publisher: At 22, Cheryl Strayed thought she had lost everything. In the wake of her mother’s death, her family scattered and her own marriage was soon destroyed. Four years later, with nothing more to lose, she made the most impulsive decision of her life: to hike the Pacific Crest Trail from the Mojave Desert through California and Oregon to Washington State—and to do it alone. She had no experience as a long-distance hiker, and the trail was little more than “an idea, vague and outlandish and full of promise.” But it was a promise of piecing back together a life that had come undone.

    Strayed faces down rattlesnakes and black bears, intense heat and record snowfalls, and both the beauty and loneliness of the trail. Told with great suspense and style, sparkling with warmth and humor, Wild vividly captures the terrors and pleasures of one young woman forging ahead against all odds on a journey that maddened, strengthened, and ultimately healed her.

    Made in USA.

    Wild: From Lost to Found on the Pacific Crest Trail - Paperback is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 1.
    Rated 3 out of 5 by from This book put the PCT on the map This book was not as good or as funny at Bill Bryson's a walk in the woods, however it did inspire me to backpack parts of the PCT in Southern California. Much of the book is typical complaining and angst that many women in their twenties feel when their life did not amount to much, she talks way too much about her pre-PCT life in excruciating details some of which is just bizarre, self serving, self pitying and mean spirited. I had to skim over those parts otherwise I would begin to hate the protagonist. That parts describing the 1100 miles of trail were well written and I could identify with her lack of preparation and feelings of loneliness and the banality of long distance hiking but also of the beauty and profound Truth that can still be found in the wild. I would recommend this book.
