Please note - I will not be attending this event - just wanted to share the info with everyone, in case you're interested in learning more about backpacking.
Backpacker Magazine's Get Out More tour gives a 75 minute presentation covering the 10 essentials of backpacking while providing information on the latest and greatest in gear. The event is free to attend and they have tons of free gear that is given away at the event.
Tour will be stopping in North Paramus, New Jersey on Thursday, June 19.
The event will be held at the Campmor store (810 Route 17, North Paramus, NJ) at 7 pm.
Campmore is a wonderful store carrying a variety of gear and clothing for outdoors orientated sports, and one of the few where you can see, feel, and touch gear before you buy it - i.e. most items are on display, and you can, for example, get inside of a tent and see how roomy it is before you decide to buy it.
