    I took my name off this class because I just spoke with Kelly at MetroParks and she said this class and the women's backpacking on the 14th are the exact same thing for women.

    Mike - this program is offered by our Five Rivers MetroParks not me or Dayton Hikers. It is held indoors. It is a very good program.

    Hi Andy,
    I think I misunderstood this meet up. Are we actually going to backpack like the last one or is this a presentation only?
