Backpacking 101 class

We will be going over the basics of hiking/backpacking.  Topics covered will be basic principals to follow, general gear to use for any type of hike.  Items used for overnight and/or multi night backpacking trips.   

Lots of gear will be on display and will be available for people to look at and examine.  

Please bring a notebook and pen for notes, water and snacks.

This will be similar to the Backpacking 101 that is being offered in September.  Due to space limitations I will not be able to setup all of the sleeping gear for this course, but will have a limited amount for people to check out.
