BACKPACKING BASICS!

  • Jun 1, 2013 · 1:00 PM
  • Nicole's House

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

Where: North Glenmore

When: May 18, 2013

Who: 14 people

Equipment: To be discussed at the meeting.

Requirements: Lawn chair, refreshments, snacks.


This event is intended help participating members prepare for summer backpacking trips. I will be covering the following:

  • Gear selection.
  • Clothing selection.
  • How to pack for different situations.
  • How to prepare for changing conditions.
  • Selecting and packing food.
  • Protecting items in your pack.
  • The emphases will not be on ultra lite backpacking.

 

It is your responsibility to make sure you have acquired all necessary equipment, clothing, and food for this trip. All outdoor activities involve a certain degree of risk, so it is up to you to be prepared, self-reliant, responsible, cautious, and aware of surrounding hazards. As well, mountain weather can be unpredictable, so be prepared for unforeseen changes. For safety reasons, if you show up for this event unprepared or with inappropriate clothing and or gear you will not be permitted to continue on the trip.

It is my intent to empower members to take responsibility and gain backcountry experience and knowledge. This event should be viewed as a learning experience as well as a fun filled trip.

At the meeting all required permits and or reservations need to be presented to the trip organizer, or you risk being removed from the trip. Any fees incurred by the group leader for your participation in the trip must be paid in full by this date. Fees paid by the group leader will be non- refundable and non-transferable(this trip involves commitment).

If you have any questions I can be contacted at[masked]
