Some What Monthly Meeting - Getting That Pack Weight Down

You are invited to join us to learn more about what's happening in your club and meet/visit with some of your fellow backpackers and hike leaders. We promise to make this a fun and enjoyable evening.

We will talk about past and future trips and go over some tips and exchange ideas for getting that pack weight down.

New and prospective members welcome.

Boulders offers a great selection of beers and Monday nights is half-priced pizza night.

The Club will provide a couple of pizzas - first come - first served

    I enjoyed the presentation and sharing of info but it cleared out almost immediately after that; no chance of getting to know anyone afterwards. Guess I'll have to meet ABC members on the trail.

    Lighten Up!, by Don Ladigin
    Lightweight Backpacking and Camping, by Ryan Jordan
    Ultralight Backpackin' Tips: 153 amazing & inexpensive tips for extremely lightweight camping, by Mike Clelland

    (all of those available in electronic format as well, because electrons are super-light)

    Trail Life, by Ray Jardine (available only through, but he's been an Arizonan for many years so you can get the book in a day)

    Hi All, looks like we will have a good crowd at our Jan meeting. We are not planning on doing pack audits at this meeting (maybe next time) but rather go over comparisions of things to bring based on weight (ie - types of water containers,water treatment systems,cooking systems, etc. We will also discuss some of the negatives and positives of each.

    For anyone that would like a checklist of what to bring on a backpack - go to ABC Meet Up Main Page - go to More - click on Files - then go to - "Camping Checklist"
