Sarah Powell has volunteered to bring her fully-loaded pack to the May meeting and let us do a "break down" and discuss every item: what might be left at home, what might be substituted with a lighter/smaller item, and what should be added. If anyone else would like to bring theirs, feel free. Just pack it exactly as you would for a weekend hike.
The Shelter is unlighted, so bring lanterns, headlamps, ... and bugspray?
Meet others in Nashville, middle Tennessee, and beyond, interested in backpacking. We also sometimes simply hike. We also kayak and kayak camp sometimes. But mostly we backpack! Talk about locations, equipment, tents, hammocks, packs, stoves, cameras and photography, clothing, weather, wildlife, food, recipes, etc., and find fellow hikers to take trips with. Classes, slideshows, and backpacking opportunities year round are available.
