Dear fellow outdoor lovers, Backpacking 101 class. It will be held at Moss Park on Saturday, April 19th from 8:30 a.m. to 6:00 p.m. Yes. An all day class with lots of breaks and lots of visual aids that I have not able to bring into the classes in the past. I will go over all aspects of backpacking, gear, clothing, etc. We have Pavilion # 5 reserved. It is screened in and has electric. It may be hot that time of year but we will be in the shade with fans and lights. Please bring whatever gear you have for backpacking. This will just be a show and tell. If you don't have anything yet, no worries. I don't want you to go buy all the gear before class because afterwards you will have a better idea of what you really need. We will take hikes at least once during the day. So much to learn in such a short day. Bring pen, paper, bug spray, sun screen, water, snacks and lunch. The fee for Saturday class is $13.00 per person. This does includes the park admission. I will send out a flyer for you to present at the gate so they don't charge you there. I will pay them for those that attend after the class. There will be a backpacking trip the following weekend. Trip location will be given at end of the class. Only class attendees or previous attendees from my classes may attend the backpacking trip. The trip will be free! My contact info is Rodney Posey at [masked] or[masked] after 5 p.m. No pets please.
