Need proof that you see more by going ultralight? Jardine, the minimalist pioneer (“The Ray Way,” 2/98) who helped jumpstart a revolution, has since (among other things) completed two AT thru-hikes, skied to the South Pole, rowed across the Atlantic, climbed the highest peak in Antarctica, completed a coast-to-coast biking yo-yo in 92 days, and, this year, embarked on a solo, 4,200-mile cross-country bike trip.
