Our Regular Monthly Meet - Second Mondays at REI

  • July 14, 2014 · 7:00 PM
  • REI

Let's talk water.  It's summer time.  It's hot.  Water is critical to a good hike.  Let's talk about finding and getting and carrying water.  Let's discuss the differences among filtering, sterilizing, and purifying.  Bring your own water system and let's compare and contrast.  Let's also talk water etiquette.  Should you bathe with soap in a stream?  Should you let your dog wallow in that spring?  Should you wash your pots and pans in a water source?

We will be discussing past and upcoming trips. If anyone has a suggestion or question, please post it in the discussion below.

All members who would like to have dinner beforehand are welcome to join at 6:00 at the Ruby Tuesday restaurant next door to REI.  Ask for the "backpacking group."

Please DO NOT RSVP merely to say "no."  It fills up the organizers' inboxes with needless, irrelevant emails.  Thanks!  We appreciate your help!

    Informative. Learned a few tricks and tips that I need to try for myself. Nice to see such a large turnout on a dreary evening. The only lacking was a nice campfire :)

Meetup has allowed me to meet people I wouldn't have met naturally - they're totally different than me.
